It was a bad day for the Phoobians on Sunday evening after their humiliating 6-1 defeat to the Wydad Athletic Club of Morocco.
Hearts of Oak who have won the first leg in Accra by 1 goal to none where highly optimistic to qualify to the next stage of the competition but ‘the world turned it back to them’ in the second leg.
After this humiliating result, the club issued a statement signed by Hearts Communications to apologize to the Phoobians and Ghanaians.
In the third paragraph of the statement they issued, “We apologize to our fans for not making the ultimate dream come true but we believe this is the time that the team needs you most to accomplish the task ahead. The CAF Champions League is a project we want to gradually make an impact on again after a very long absence.
“Therefore we could like to remind our supporters to stay united as we have another qualification match for the group stages of the Confederations Cup and as we kick off the campaign to defend our Ghana Premier League Table.”
