Hearts of Oak boss Samuel Boadu insists the Rainbows have failed this season despite their President’s Cup and the MTN FA Cup glory.
The defending champions of the GPL wanted to finish in the top four, however, damaging defeats to Great Olympics, King Faisal, Eleven Wonders, and RTU, saw Boadu’s side slip to the sixth position.
It took the team Sunday evening to beat Bechem United 2-1 in the FA Cup finals held at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium to book a ticket for the upcoming CAF Confederations Cup and also to make their fans proud.
Another silverware for Samuel Boadu’s side was great, with the Phobians holding the nerve of the Hunters to retain the title following the President’s Cup victory in March.
Boadu, who claimed his fifth trophy for the Phobians in his second year admits Hearts of Oak is a big club but missing out on the GPL top four is a failure.
“Hearts of Oak is a big club and we can’t end the season without a trophy, but as a coach not being in the top four, I feel I have failed. People should know this as well, with Coach Boadu there’s always a trophy to win,” Samuel Boadu stated via a post-match interview after lifting the MTN FA Cup.
Hearts of Oak finished sixth on the table of the just-ended Ghana Premier League, with 48 points.
The club will represent Ghana in the 2022/23 Confederations Cup after last season’s early exit.
