“For the CAF Champions League it k my has the African tag with normal players. Whatever the other African clubs can do my players can do as well. There is no way Hearts of oak will go outside and disgrace Ghana.”
The above statement was made by you, and of course, if it were made in the ’90s or 2000s, you would’ve been so right.
But the reality today is that your club after winning the champions league 21 years and the maiden CAF consideration cup, 17 years ago has moved 30 years back while their peers are 30 years ahead,
Again, I want to point out to you that no club in Ghana goes out to disgrace the country, but the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak
With what happened in Casablanca last Sunday, given the opportunity again I do not doubt that you will not repeat the same words.
Conceding 6 in your first Africa outing is tough, but your ability to accept and recover quickly is the most important thing now.
Great coaches have suffered more humiliating defeats in more favorable settings than yours but they quickly put it behind them and try to achieve things
You’ve assembly very talented and hardworking players who need a strong you to get the best out of them for tomorrow success
The defeat will forever be part of your history, but you have the opportunity to create more wins in the future that will be louder than the ‘Casablanca massacre’
Your credentials will be tested again when your side face whichever club you draw against in the final playoffs in the CAF consideration
I wish you all the best.
Yours Listowel Mensah.
