Accra Hearts of Oak manager Samuel Boadu is optimic that citi rivals Great Olympics will not beat his side for the third time in a row under his watch.
Boadu heads into this weekend’s Mantse derby having failed to beat Hearts of Oak’s city rivals since moving to the capital.
Great Olympics swept Hearts of Oak last season, winning two meetings 4-0 on aggregate. Before that, Great Olympics and Hearts of Oak drew 1-1 in the season Hearts of Oak won the championship.
This means that Boadu has faced Great Olympics three times since becoming Hearts of Oak coach and has yet to taste victory, and he is desperate to end that streak.
“We know Olympics have beaten us twice so they have this mindset that they can do it again but it won’t happen the third time so we Hearts of Oak have prepared to meet Olympics,” said Boadu.
He added, “fans who will be at the stadium would witness good football and at the end of the day Hearts of Oak will take the three points.”
