Hearts of Oak striker Selassie Adjei says he is unable to sleep and eat following his missed chances in the 2-1 defeat to Heart of Lions on Sunday.
The striker who was brought in during the secondary transfer window from Amidaus Professionals missed a glorious sitter to open the scoring for the Phobians.
Coach Mohammed Poloâ€™s side were eventually punished severely for their wastefulness with another home defeat despite taking the lead through an impressive finish from Winful Cobbinah.
And Selassie Adjei who was expected to lead Heartsâ€™ revival in the second half of the season but has so far been drawing blanks is taking all the blame for the sideâ€™s latest defeat.
â€œIt is very disappointing with this latest defeat,â€ he told Metro FM.
â€œThe team has been fighting for goals and I got a glorious opportunity which I messed up badly.
â€œI take full responsibility for this defeat because of the opportunities I missed.
â€œThese are chances that strikers donâ€™t miss and it hurts me a lot whenever I think about them.
â€œThe coach did his part to give us confidence in training but on the field of play I wasnâ€™t able to do it.
â€œIt hurts a lot as I have been unable to sleep and eat.â€
Hearts have now dropped to third with their faint chances of reclaiming the Premier League title from rivals Asante Kotoko taking another massive hit for the worse with six matches to go.
