Hearts Squad 

Many Hearts supporters who thronged to Baba Yara Sports Stadium this afternoon were left disappointed after seeing their darling club losing to arc rival Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

The much talked about game happened earlier today in Kumasi after seeing postponements.

It was Hearts of Oak who took an early lead curtesy Kofi Kordji. It did not take long for Kotoko to respond to the call as Hearts could not handle the pressure leading to an own goal.

The first half of the game ended in a 1-1 draw with high expectations from Hearts fans sure of a win.

The game ended as Kotoko were crowned champions for winning the 2019 president's cup in a 2-1 encounter.

Fans of Hearts after the game, showed their utmost disappointment with some questioning the tactical ability of the gaffer.

A fan by name Samuel Anafi travelling all the way from Asankrangwa in the Western Region  vented his frustration when speaking with

" I came all the way from Asanco just to cheer my team, look at the poor performance they displayed today, as if the boys have never played football before, for me I'm highly disappointed, the whole team needs to be dissolved so that new payers can come in"

Another fan who only disclosed his identity as Alfred has this to say

" I think Kotoko deserve a win, Maxwell Konadu has again showed that he has the antidote of winning against Hearts any time any day, I love Hearts of Oak, I'm a die hard phobian, the way our guys played today, it's not good, if we continue like this, I'm not sure we can win the league"

Some of the fans questioned the coach tactics

" What kind of formation is the coach playing, some of us don't understand him at all, today he plays this player, tomorrow he plays another player, this try and error will not work, the coach must sit up and work, else we the fans will sack him like kotoko did to David Duncan." Frimpong from Konongo

Opoku Emmanuel, a die hard fan of Accra Hearts of Oak on sharing his thoughts in a whatsapp group believes, management of Hearts have failed to solve the problems of the team, he indicated that, the team performance during the NC tournaments has dwindled leaving the team to fare poorly. He added that, Hearts needed a goal poacher to bang in the goals

"I think it was a good game for both Kotoko and Hearts but in all, Kotoko did well because they were determined to win the game. First of all Kim Grant need to be serious, after the NC tournament, Hearts team hasn't been good. Secondly the problem of the team is still not solved, the team needs a goal poacher but he (Kim Grant) has decided to go into the season with Kofi, Abubakar and Bernard which will not help us. Even though Kofi is doing his best, he can't do the dirty work and the scoring at the same time.

Kim Grant in his post match interview with, said he is bidding his time for the league, and a loss to Kotoko will not have any negative effect on his team.

"well it's sad we lost, but this is not a game that will bring a bad energy to my team, I'm making a time for my team, when the league starts, we will definitely see hearts doing wonders. We are focused and won't let today's result destruct us."
