CAF Confederation Cup: Hearts legend slams players over tournament exit

Published on: 06 December 2021

Hearts of Oak legend Amankwah Mireku has blamed the players for the team’s defeat to JS Saoura of Algeria in the CAF Confederation Cup play-offs.

The Ghana Premier League champions exited the competition on Sunday after losing 4-0 in the second leg. On aggregate the Phobians lost 4-2.

Hearts of Oak have now been dumped out of the CAF Inter-club competition this season.

Speaking in an interview on Happy Sports after the team’s defeat, the former Hearts of Oak captain slammed the players for the teams exit from the competition.

“Seriously the players were a big disappointment. For them to have let this happen again it’s a big disgrace”, he told Happy FM.

“There was no need to even tell them what to do after the WAC defeat. The WAC team is not extraordinary. It’s just concentration and determination. The WAC game was a typical example to motivate the players for this game. Does it mean now the team cannot score in away matches and then you concede another four goals”

Amankwah Mireku came to the defense of head coach Samuel Boadu indicating he is not to be blamed for the defeat.

“Why do we have to blame the coach. What has he done. Sometimes the players must improvise but i don’t see the Hearts of Oak players are that intelligent to help the coach.

“Any coach who has players that can’t improvise or think during the course of the game is in trouble”, he added.
