Hearts of oak has finally unveiled the signing of talented Eleven wonders playmaker Salifu Ibrahim on Saturday evening.
The entertaining player signed a three-year deal with the Phobians.
Tipped for greatness, Salifu has no option than to work hard to realize his full potentials.
The 20-year-old is a fantastic player, a solid creative player who had his breakthrough season in the ongoing Ghana Premier League and a move to a big club like Hearts is something every young player wouldn’t want to miss.
There is no surprise that he agreed to sign for Hearts after a host of clubs wanted his signature.
Salifu is expected to replicate the same performances he gave Wonders to help Hearts win the league for the first time in 10 years.
Haven’t said that, is Ibrahim Salifu the player Hearts need to improve their squad to win the league?
We think NO
We say so because we think Hearts of oak problem is with the defence, not the midfield or the attack
With three coaches already this season, the evidence is clear that Hearts have no problem creating chances and scoring goals,
Sir Alex Ferguson will say, “attack wins you games but defence wins you titles”
If Hearts hierarchy took this statement seriously they would’ve thought twice in signing Salifu
Hearts don’t have a problem going forward
Patrick Razak, Frederick Ansah Botwe, Umar Manuf, Michelle Sarpong, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh are all creative players
Who have contributed 21 goals in 15 matches
That is 1.4 per game average.
In the league, you need only one goal and not concede to win three points.
Stats show Hearts score at least a goal in each game.
In contrast, Hearts have conceded 14 goals in 15 games
A goal each game, which is not a good sign for a team that wants to win titles
So if you are going to buy a player you check where you need to improve and we believe Hearts needed a defensive reinforcement than an additional creative player.
