Hearts of Oak assistant Coach Abdul Rahim Bashiru, echoing sentiments shared by recently sacked head coach Martin Koopman, expressed frustration over his team’s strikers’ poor conversion rate.
In contrast, Aduana Stars Football Club’s head coach, Yaw Acheampong, revealed that their triumph against Hearts of Oak Sporting Club did not come as a surprise.
Acheampong made this statement in the aftermath of Aduana’s 1-0 victory over Hearts in the Ghana Premier League Match Day 13 at Nana Agyemang Badu Park, secured through a deflected free-kick effort from Bright Adjei.
Post-match, Acheampong conveyed satisfaction with the result, emphasizing that the win wasn’t unexpected, stating, “No, I wasn’t shocked (about the win). We have lost two in a row, and it’s not good to lose three games, so it’s very important to us, and I am happy we have the day.”
On the other hand, Bashiru, while discussing his team’s performance, echoed Koopman’s concerns about the strikers, expressing less enthusiasm.
“We keep giving the strikers chances to see if they can put the ball in the back of the net because we are creating chances, but all this (wasting of chances) will go on to the coach,” Bashiru remarked.
Hearts of Oak currently occupies ninth place in the standings, while Aduana Stars claims the top spot after their recent victory.
