The 2021 CAF U-20 AFCON winner shot the Phobians into the lead from the penalty spot with just 14 minutes into the week 21 clash at the Accra Sports Stadium. The visitors pulled level through Aminu Adams header at the 23rd minute but Barnieh’s stunning strike in the second half won all three points for the Phobians. The goal, assisted by burly striker Kofi Kordzi, has left Muntari singing the praise of the young forward.
“It [the goal] was amazing, he is an amazing player, he is very good. “He is very important for us so he getting two goals today is very important. “His confidence will come back again, he is an amazing player, amazing talent, young one.
“So I’m really happy with his performance, I’m also here to make sure that I help him to grow, that’s my priority.” Muntari told StarTimes. The win gives Hearts of Oak 32 points after 21 games but will remain in 6th position.
