Hearts of Oak Champions League opponents sign former Kotoko midfielder


The Crocodiles have in their set up another midfielder from Ghana as they prepare to face the Phobians next month

Hearts of Oak will be representing Ghana in the 2021/22 season of Caf Champions League after winning Ghana Premier League and FA Cup.

The Phobians were handed a relatively manageable opponents on Friday after a draw was held at Caf’s headquarters in Cairo, Egypt. Hearts will face Guinean club CI Kamsar in the preliminary stages of the competition with the first leg set for the weekend of September 10-12 in Kamsar and the return between 17-19 September at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Kamsar recently signed former Asante Kotoko captain Amos Frimpong in a one-year deal from Techiman Eleven Wonders to bolster their defence.

It has also been revealed that former Kotoko midfielder Martin Antwi has joined the club a couple of days ago but it looks as his signing was on the blind side of many Ghanaian journalists.

Antwi, who fell out with Kotoko’s top hierarchy and was even not part of the club’s programs last season, joined Kamsar on August 9.

The skillful winger, who also played for WAFA and Inter Allies, is expected to bring his experience on board when Kamsar prepare to host Hearts next month.

Antwi, unlike Frimpong, is not an outspoken player and always want to prove himself on the field when given the opportunity to play.

Aside the two Ghanaians, Kamsar have also signed Nigerian Damilola Sheyi Wilson, Camara Hassimidu, Kouakou Kanga, Sogbossi Caro and Sankoumba Sylla. Others also include Seydou Ndour, Moussa Bangoura and Ibrahim Cissoko.

Hearts coach Samuel Boadu will now have to deploy tactics that will factor these two Ghanaian players in the setup of Kamsar.

The winner between Kamsar and Hearts after the two legs, will face Moroccan giants Wydad Athletic Club (WAC) in the final elimination round for a place in the group stage.
