Head coach of Hearts of Oak, Samuel Boadu has admitted that the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League is very tough.
The last season treble winning club were are the mercy of public ridicule following a shabby performance in both the CAF Champions League and the Confederation Cup.
Their last two games in continental football resulted in 10 goals conceded and they scoring four times in the process, leading up to disastrous exits.
The 2000 CAF Champions League winners returned to focus on the domestic league and have since looked a revived side – winning three games in all competitions.
They recorded two straight wins in the their last two premier league games – a 1-0 victory against Elmina Sharks at the Nduom Stadium in week eight and a 2-0 win at the Cape Coast Stadium against neighbors, Accra Lions.
They defeated Accra Lions 1-0 in the MTN FA Cup round of 64 at the Carl Reindorf Park in Dansoman on Wednesday took a round 32 place.
Hearts coach, Samuel Boadu tells Africa-foot.com’s Adamu Muftawu how difficult the season has gone so far.
“This season is very tough because all the clubs had enough rest after last season’s but Hearts did not get enough rest.
“So it’s difficult for us to come back.
“However with the managerial skills, we managed to do our best.” Samuel Boadu told Africa-foot.com.
Hearts of Oak now have nine points from six matches with three outstanding games against Berekum Chelsea, Asante Kotoko and Medeama.
They have picked three draws, one defeat and two victories in the 2021/22 league season and currently sit 12th on the log.
