Management member of Ghana Premier League champions, Accra Hearts of Oak, Alhaji Braimah Akambi has said that, the club’s head coach, Samuel Boadu must explain the heavy defeat to Morocco champions, Wydad Athletic Club.
Hearts of Oak lost their reverse fixture of the second 2021/22 CAF Champions League game against Wydad Athletic Club by 6-1 at the Mohammed V Stadium on Sunday to end the two legged game at 6-2 on aggregate.
The Phobians had already posted a 1-0 victory against the same side in the first leg at the Accra Sports Stadium a week ago but fell heavily in the second.
Alhaji Braimah Akambi who has been working tirelessly in and around the club says, the head coach must explain why the team lost by that heavy margin.
“Coach Samuel Boadu needs to explain things to us because Hearts don’t deserve this scoreline.
“But all the same we have learnt a lot in this game.
“We will correct our mistakes going into the Confederations Cup.” Alhaji Akambi said on Light FM.
Hearts of Oak per the results will drop to the second tier CAF organized club competition, the CAF Confederation Cup.
The Phobians will have another tall mountain to climb in the CAF Confederation Cup as the clubs they will be pitted against are equally tough.
Hearts of Oak have been placed in POT 3 alongside Tusker FC of Kenya, Eswatini’s Royal Leopards, APR FC of Rwanda, US Gendarmerie of Niger, Liberia’s LPRC Oilers, AS Maniema Union of Congo, Al Ittihad SC of Libya and Mali’s Stade Malien for the CAF Confederation Cup draw and will face tough opponents in POT 4.
Clubs set to be paired against the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League champions and the 2000 CAF Champions League winners in POT 4 include, RS Berkane of Morocco, Egypt’s duo of Al Masry or Pyramids FC, JS Kabylie of Algeria, Nigeria’s Enyimba FC, Tunisia side, CS Sfaxien, Cotonsport FC of Cameroon and South Africa’s, Orlando Pirates.
