I Want to Lift Hearts of Oak to Another Level - Abdul Aziz

It is good to set targets however when you are returning from injury and trying to break into a team’s starting eleven, one needs to be measured in his ambitions. 

We shall be talking about Accra Hearts of Oak midfielder, Abdul Aziz Nurudeen. The young and hardworking midfielder has set an lofty target for himself as he tries to regain his grounds with the Phobians. Winning the Ghana Premier League, FA Cup and as well as excelling in continental football like the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup are the first and foremost target of the dreadlocked Aziz Nurudeen.

Nurudeen who signed for Accra Hearts of Oak from Division One League club, Vision FC, in 2020 in a three-year deal transfer deadline day was roped in by the Phobians alongside sleek midfielder, Frederick Ansah Botchway and Daniel Afriyie Barnieh. The 23-year-old hit the ground running until his injury in February which forced him to go into the treatment room for eight months.

He was declared fit and has since returned to full time training under young and intelligent head coach, Samuel Boadu a few weeks ago. It is however left for for him to break into the starting line up of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League holders who are so far into the second stage of the 2021/22 CAF Champions League. He was not registered for the CAF Champions League campaign due to the long injury layoff but he wants to win major trophies when he returns to playing regularly. “My target and ambition is about winning the Ghana Premier league with Accra Hearts Of Oak. “Again as well as the FA Cup and also try to excel and go far in the CAF Champions league.” Aziz Nurudeen told Adamu Muftawu.

The 23-year-old last featured for the Phobians in a 1-1 draw against former Wa All Stars now Legon Cities FC. That appearance was in February last season where he picked up the muscle injury. He is most definitely set to feature for Hearts of Oak regularly next season with the CAF Champions League, Super Cup and Confederation Cup winners opening their 2021/22 Premier League campaign against Legon Cities FC at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Hearts of Oak qualified for the 2021/22 CAF Champions League after winning the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League. They knicked home 61 points after 34 matches of the season with rivals, Asante Kotoko scoring 57 points to come second at the end of the season. Hearts of Oak eliminated Guinea side, Club Industriel de Kamsar in a 2-0 score line over one leg at the Accra Sports Stadium in the first preliminary round of games. The game was expected to be played over two legs but due to the Coup D’Etat in Guinea, it had to be played over a leg at the Accra Sports Stadium. The two goals were scored by big striker, Kofi Kodzi and Salim Adams in the first and second half respectively.
