Ghana's No. 1

Published on: 03 September 2022

Hearts of Oak youngster Enock Asubonteng is looking ahead to a successful campaign as the 2022-23 season is a week away from commencing with the Ghana Premier League kicking off next week.

The 21-year-old has admitted his performance in the last season was non-satisfactory and is working towards making amends in the upcoming season.

"Last season was more of a rollercoaster season for me and I must admit that things didn't go the way I wanted it," Asubonteng told GHANAsoccernet.com in an exclusive interview.

"I know my abilities and capabilities so I will say I wasn't satisfied with my performance for Hearts of Oak.

"I think it's because I didn't have enough of pre-season training with the team when I joined. I couldn't bond so well with my then new teammates.

Asubonteng joined the Phobians in August last year from WAFA SC for an undisclosed amount.

The highly-rated forward made his debut for Hearts few weeks later in the CAF Champions League preliminary round when they beat Guinean side CI Kamsar at the Accra Sports Stadium.

He went ahead to make 25 appearances in all competitions, played 17 games in the Ghana League, 2 matches in the Champions League and 2 in the Confederation Cup.

He also played a significant role in the club's FA Cup triumph as they defended the title by beating Bechem United in the final.

However, Asubonteng is optimistic of a successful campaign when the new season after having what seem to be a "very good" pre-season.

"Of course I will make amends in the new season. I'm so much confident that it will be successful for me and the entire team as well.

"The kind of pre-season I have had with team is really good for me to excel. I have now bonded so well in the players and that's so refreshing.

"I can't give outright figures as to the number goals and assists I will produce this season but I will be key in the scheme things for Phobia. You can count on me."

Asubonteng is already up and running in the pre-season having scored when Hearts beat lower-tier side Future Stars in a test match last Wednesday.
