Hearts of Oak’s Communications Director, Opare Addo, has promised supporters that the team will win against Bechem United.
Hearts of Oak will take on Bechem United in the MTN FA cup on Sunday as they look to defend their title. Hearts of Oak couldn’t defend their league title after Asante Kotoko ended their eight years league title drought in spectacular style.
Hearts of Oak ended the season on eighth position with forty-eight points.
Opare Addo is optimistic Hearts of Oak will win the MTN FA cup against Bechem United.
“I must say we are ready for the Bechem United game. We did not achieve our target in the Ghana Premier League but we are ready for the game on Sunday,” he told Asempa FM.
“The team is in good shape, and I am convinced they will deliver on Sunday. We are the defending champions of the FA Cup and we must try to defend the trophy on Sunday at the Baba Yara Stadium,” he added.
However, Opare Addo admits Hearts of Oak are underdogs and believes that Bechem United have quality players.
“They had a good campaign and without a doubt, they have quality players. In the Premier League, they held us to a goalless game at the Accra Sports Stadium, and in Bechem, we played a 1-1 draw,” he said on Asempa FM
“But this is the FA and many have touted Bechem United to win the trophy because they are on good form. We are underdogs and we are fine with that but I believe the players will prove their critics wrong on Sunday.
“I am confident we defend our trophy on Sunday despite the underdog tag,” he concluded.
