Hearts of Oak head coach Edward Nii Odoom, says the club has a strong team capable of competing in Africa inter-clubs competitions should they get to opportunity.
Odoom has been in charge of Hearts of Oak on an interim basis after Kim Grant was fired following the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League opening game 1-0 loss to Berekum Chelsea.
The 2000 Caf Champions League winners, have struggled for consistency before the suspension of the Ghana Premier League season on 15 March 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
“When it is about playing in Africa, my team is ready but we cannot play because of COVID-19,” he said.
“But the conditions around the coronavirus pandemic can’t make us play in Africa. This is because you wouldn’t know the actual conditions in the country you are going to play in. You have to ensure that everyone is safe.”
Hearts of Oak have not played in continental competitions since 2015 where they succumbed to Esperance de Tunis in the play-off round of the CAF Confederation Cup.
They currently sit on 8th position on the premiership standings after matches.
