Hearts of Oak Players Are Becoming Hungrier For Success - Sam Johnson

Hearts of Oak look like re-writing a new script after paying Inter Allies in their own coin at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday evening.

The Phobians smiled with three points in their basket on match day 20 of the 2020/21 Ghana premier league courtesy Paul Abagna’s 26th own goal.

The 20-time Ghana Champions had lost 1-0 to AshantiGold in a last gasp goal in match-day 19 at the Len Clay Stadium.

Prior to that defeat, coach Samuel Boadu recorded two victories against WAFA and Aduana Stars.

A 4-0 win over WAFA and a 2-0 against Aduana Stars confirmed the work rate of the club’s coach who joined them from Medeama SC.

Hearts of Oak legend, Sam Johnson believes, the past few weeks has shown that players of the 2000 CAF Champions League winners are becoming hungrier for success.

“You know the hunger sometimes you need to build it, so the coach must build that hunger into the players 

“You the player have to support yourself, you the player you know where you want to go or what you want to achieve in life.

“Because you chose football as your profession so you need to push yourself to get to that level.

“Sometimes it depends on individual players and this time that thing [drive to win] is coming because I can see that they have that kind of character.

“Not like before but I can see that thing in them.” Sam Johnson told Adamu Muftawu.

Hearts of Oak have now gathered 33 points from 20 games.

They are just a point behind second place Great Olympics and two less than leaders and bitter rivals, Asante Kotoko who are top of the table.

Hearts of Oak will next play Karela United on match day 21 at the Cosby Awuah Memorial Park.

Ghana Premier League clubs will heave a sigh of relief with 25% fans set to attend games as stated by the Ghana government.
