Head coach of Legon Cities FC, Maxwell Konadu has thrown his support for Ghana’s sole continental campaigners, Accra Hearts of Oak.
The Phobians are representing the West Africa nation in the second tier CAF organized club competition, the Confederation Cup.
Hearts of Oak dropped to the 2021/22 CAF Confederation Cup after crushing under the jackboot of Morocco champions, Wydad Athletic Club in the second round preliminary playoffs over two legs.
The 21 time Ghana champions knicked just a goal past the Moroccan club in the first leg with Isaac Mensah’s only strike at the Accra Sports Stadium last month.
The reverse fixture is something the 2000 CAF Champions League winners will quickly want to forget after a 6-1 defeat at the Mohammed V Stadium to finish on a 6-2 aggregate.
Hearts of Oak have another opportunity to redeem an image and that will be another journey to North Africa.
The 2001 CAF Super Cup winners will first host Algeria club, Jeunesse Sportive de Saoura at the Accra Sports Stadium before traveling for the second leg a week later in Algeria.
Maxwell Konadu, who has vast experience in continental football, has wished the Phobians the best of luck and believes their good performance only benefits Ghana.
“We wish Hearts all the best in Africa because when they go and lift the flag of Ghana high, Ghana football only benefits, so we wish them all the best.” Maxwell Konadu said.
Hearts of Oak started their premier league title defence with a goalless draw against Legon Cities at the Accra Sports Stadium last Sunday.
The record FA Cup holders [11 Cups] will travel to Sogakope as guests of West Africa Football Academy in match week two of the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League.
