“It’s a painful draw against Legon Cities,” underfire Samuel Boadu blames players’ lack of concentration for stalemate


The pressure keeps mounting on the man who just five months ago was hailed as the best coach in the country having guided the Phobians to their maiden league trophy in a little over decade

Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu has blamed his players’ lack of concentration for the 1-1 draw against Legon Cities at the El Wak Sports Stadium on Saturday.

After going ahead in the game thanks to a tailor-measured corner kick by Sulley Muntari which was met by Isaac Mensah, the Phobians failed to add another goal and Legon pulled even deep in additional time.

A mis-kick by defender Korsah gave Osman Amadu an opportunity to bring his side level and he made no mistake.

The defeat means that Hearts are without a win in four games and although they are eleven points behind Asante Kotoko, the gap could be widen should their rivals defeat Dreams FC on Sunday.

“It is a painful draw against Legon Cities because we thought we were done with it just few minutes from full time. Always, [my players] need to be composed and have mental toughness because that cost us a lot,” Boadu said in an interview with StarTimes as quoted by AshesGyamera.com

“It is very bad [we picked two points from six against Legon]. Obviously, this was not what we wanted. This is football,we always stay focus and concentrate till the end of the game. Of you lose a little concentration you’ll be punished. That was what happened to us,” he added.
