Dr. Tony Aubynn, a board member of Medeama SC, is of the opinion that the era of Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko’s dominance in the Ghana Premier League has come to an end.
As an Executive Council Member of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Aubynn observes that the decline of these two traditional powerhouses aligns with a global trend of unexpected challengers emerging victorious.
In the recently concluded season, Aubynn’s team, Medeama, clinched their first-ever Ghana league title, surpassing competition from Aduana FC and Bechem United, rather than the usual contenders, Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko.
“The days of the dominance of these clubs (Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko) are over and this is a reflection of football globally,” he told Joy News.
“I mean who ever thought Saudi Arabia will beat Argentina? And many other surprises that are coming up in football.“
“Who ever thought the Black Galaxies would be playing Madagascar and Madagascar will beat Ghana?”
In the past ten seasons, Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko have collectively secured five Ghana Premier League titles, with the Porcupine Warriors claiming four of them.
