Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu has refused to give up on keeping the league title he conquered last year despite a 1-0 loss to Hearts of Oak biggest rivals in Ghana Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday, April, 10.
A first- half penalty gave to Kotoko by referee Kennedy Padi and converted by Cameroonian Frank Etuoga saw the Porcupine Warriors emerging us winners and extended their lead on the league table.
With ten matches to the close of the season, it appears Hearts will need a miracle to keep their title but Samuel Boadu says there are additional twists and turns.
“ Some of the calls of the referee weren’t genuine but we’ve ten games to go and we will never say die.”
Meanwhile, Kotoko coach Prosper Nartey Ogun says his outfit won’t get insensible despite the victory over Hearts and will remain focused until the end of the season.
“ We’ve a lot of games to play, there are 30 points left and if any team wins all of that they can overtake us. We’ll remain focused until the last game against Accra Lions,” Ogun told StarTimes after the game.
This is the first time since 2018 that Kotoko have been able to beat their arch-rivals at the Baba Yara stadium.
