Former Hearts of Oak star Bernard Don Bortey has stated that he wants to manage Real Madrid or Barcelona one day.
The former U-17 star in an interview on his recent appointment as Hearts of Oak’s development coach, stated his target.
“That’s not where I’m targeting, although we start from somewhere. But for me, my target is to coach Real Madrid, Barcelona, or Juventus. I said this thing on radio some time ago, and today I’m saying it on TV. Even then, I wasn’t a coach. I said I’ll coach Barcelona when I become a coach. Ghanaians lashed out at me me, saying I can’t. Maybe it looks huge in the eyes of humans, but it’s not huge in God’s eyes,” he said in an interview with Onua TV.
“Because the ones who are coaching these teams were players like Don Boartey, and now they are coaching. So if Don Boartey says he will be a coach, why not support me with prayers rather than criticising that I can’t do it? I know that with what I’m saying, I’m not going to give up. That is why they call me the humble Lion. I’m strong.”
Bortey has won one CAF Confederation Cup in his career.
