Hearts of Oak midfielder Benjamin Afutu Kotey insists his teammates are more than determined to end the 11-year trophy drought of the club.
The hardworking midfielder has been one of the best players for the Phobians in the ongoing campaign.
Afutu was on target for the Phobians in their 2-0 win over Berekum Chelsea on Sunday to reclaim top spot from arch-rivals Asante Kotoko on matchday 27 encounter played at the Accra Sports Stadium.
His impressive display on the match-day was adjudged Man-of-the-Match, an accolade he has won several times during the course of the season.
Speaking at a post-match presser after their win, the midfielder said all other players were aware of the long trophy drought and have held discussions as to how to break the jinx.
“We have advised ourselves as players regarding the situation of not winning a trophy for the last 11 years. The concentration of the guys is very high this time around and we have to do our best, come together and deliver the cup for the club at the end of the season,’’ he said.
When asked whether head Coach Samuel Boadu had improved his play on the field, Afutu said: “Coach Boadu has refined me as a player since he joined Hearts. He already knew my style of play and he has helped push me and am getting better match after match”.
Hearts of Oak currently are on top of the league standings with 49 points, 2 points above arch rivals Asante Kotoko.
