We Could Have Beaten Hearts by More Goals - Umar Rabi

Head coach of Medeama, Umar Abdul Rabi cannot sleep over his side’s failure to convert the numerous chances against Hearts of Oak.

The young trainer led his charges to knick a single goal past the defending champions at the Akoon Park in a week six outstanding fixture on Wednesday. The Mauve and Yellow had to count on defender, Vincent Atinga, whose 82nd minute penalty confirmed his former club to their second defeat of the season. Hearts defender, Robert Addo Sowah clumsily brought down Burkina Faso striker, Ahmed Toure with Atinga electing himself and perfectly converting. Umar Rabi believes his men could have netted more than just a goal.

“We should have scored more goals. We created a lot of chances that we should have scored more than one goal today buts it’s unfortunate that we couldn’t. “I’ve watched them [Hearts of Oak] a lot so today I played 4-4-2 diamond, so I was playing four midfielders who didn’t give them the chance to play in the midfield. “We didn’t play with wingers today and when you look at the game, we allowed our full-backs to operate for us more today and it worked for us.

“It’s a game after game, so after this one we go to the next game against [Great] Olympics. “So this one is history now, so we are working towards Accra Great Olympics on Sunday here again.” Umar Rabi told StarTimes. Medeama per the victory have jumped into 4th on 22 points from 12 games. They will next play Great Olympics in week 13 at home on Sunday, January 16.
