I’m Not Worried About Missing Samuel Boadu’s Squad - Hearts of Oak Midfielder

Returning from injury is the best ever news for every footballer globally but staying fit and breaking into the starting eleven of a coach is the main task for each and every player in the world.

That is the main task and duty Hearts of Oak midfielder, Abdul Aziz Nurudeen is currently grappling with after returning from a lengthy injury from last season. The 23-year-old was rocked by a muscle injury in Hearts of Oak’s 1-1 draw against Legon Cities FC last season which sidelined him for eight months without activities and even much game time. The Ghana U-23 midfielder has however started “kicking and running” after doctors declared him fit weeks ago. With a plethora of players in Hearts of Oak’s midfield, it looks increasingly difficult for the youngster to easily break into Samuel Boadu’s starting line up for ongoing league season, the MTN FA Cup and probably the CAF Confederation Cup campaign. Aziz Nurudeen is however confident that with hard work and consistency, he will soon return to playing regular football.

“Of Course yes I can [break into the starting line up]. I was playing regularly before I got injured. “So Insha Allah the hardwork and extra trainings that I have been doing wouldn’t stop. “I will still put up some more and do whatever the coach desires and listen to his instructions and the pattern of play he wants us to play to impress our current coach. “So that would break through into the team once again.” Aziz Nurudeen told

Abdul Aziz Nurudeen joined Hearts of Oak from Division One club, Vision FC in 2020 alongside Frederick Ansah Botchway and Daniel Afriyie Barnieh on transfer deadline day. The devout Muslim was not registered for the CAF Champions League which the Phobians have since exited due to the long term injury but is still in the plans of head coach, Samuel Boadu for this season’s domestic football.

Hearts of Oak opened their premier league title defence with a goalless draw against Legon Cities FC at the Accra Sports Stadium last Sunday with Aziz Nurudeen missing in the match day squad. The Phobians go into match week two against West Africa Football Academy at the Sogakope Park on Friday, November 5. Hearts of Oak will equally have an eye on the CAF Confederation Cup playoff against Algeria club, Jeunesse Sportive de Saoura with the first fixture set for the Accra Sports Stadium and the reverse a week later in Algeria. Hearts of Oak dropped to the CAF Confederation Cup after suffering a 6-2 humiliating aggregate score line over two legs against Morocco giants, Wydad Athletic Club in the second round playoffs.
