Head coach of Accra Hearts of Oak, Samuel Boadu says the players only need to be psyched up in order to come out of their shells.
The Phobians had their winless run in the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League deepened when AshantiGold confirmed them to a 2-0 defeat at the Len Clay Stadium in week four on Sunday.
One goal in each half from Yaw Annor and Abdul Salam nailed the millennium champions – making it four games without a win.
Coach Samuel Boadu attributed the defeat to fatigue on the part of the players.
“It’s quite unfortunate that we lost this game but we came in to at least these three maximum points but it’s quite unfortunate that we were down by 2-0.
“I always keep saying that there is fatigue. During the first half we played very good game but after the recess, when we came back you could see that the boys were very tired and they cannot even pass and distribute the balls,” Samuel Boadu said
Samuel Boadu is not giving up yet on winning games as he believes the league is a long way off.
“It’s a long way to, it’s not yet over. This is a competition so we are in it so we are pushing harder to climb the ladder.
The former Medeama SC trainer says the players need to be psyched up for them to come up with the performance they exhibited last season.
“Psychologically we need to psyche them, we need to sit them down and psyche them and then we move on.” Samuel Boadu added.
Hearts of Oak now have three points out of a possible 12 in four opening games. They trail their rivals, Asante Kotoko by nine points.
