Patrick Razak shares light on Hearts of Oak winning Ghana Premier League this season but title hopes downplayed by boss

Hearts of Oak winger Patrick Razak has reiterated that it is their target to clinch the Ghana Premier League title at the end of the season.

The Phobians moved to the 3rd place on the league standings three points behind the leaders after beating Aduana Stars 2-0 on Sunday.

Razak, who emerged man of the match claims the victory against Aduana is as important as a good start to the second round of the campaign.

“It was a very tough game. Our target is to win the league. The three points against Aduana is very important to us to have a good start to the second round,” Razak expressed.

“Our aim was to beat Aduana and look forward to the subsequent matches.”

Hearts are unbeaten in their last six matches in the league with the last defeat dating back on 4 February 2021.

The Phobians make a trip to Obuasi to tackle AshantiGold SC in their next fixture.

Meanwhile, Samuel Boadu, Head Coach of the club has downplayed league title ambitions of his side revealing that their target is to secure a good position on the league table at the end of the season.

The Phobians who last won the league title in the 2009/10 season is currently placed third on the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League table with 30 points from 18 matches.

Speaking at a post-match press conference after their 2-0 win against Aduana Stars on Easter Sunday, Boadu said they are not in hurry to break their 12-year trophy-less drought but focused on securing a good position at the end of the season.

“We are not in a hurry for the league title this year. The focus is to win every match that we play so that it would give us a good position,” Coach Boadu said.

When asked to share his thoughts about their encounter with Aduana Stars, Coach Boadu said, “It was a very tough game and we didn’t play the way we wanted to play.

“I like playing possessive football but Aduana did not allow us to control the game and when we got the goal things became very difficult but we managed the game to get all three points.”
