Hearts Of Oak Release Official Statement Apologizing To Fans For Their Embarrassing 6-1 Defeat to Wydad

Accra Hearts of Oak yesterday succumbed to an embarrassing 6-1 defeat Moroccan side Wydad Athletic club in the second leg of the CAF Champions League qualification

The first leg which was played in Ghana at the home stadium of Accra Hearts of Oak ended 1-0 in their favour but the second leg was a completely different story as the Moroccan side dismantled the Accra Hearts of Oak team

The Club has come out with an official statement apologizing to their fans and all stakeholders for their embarrassing defeat to the Moroccan side

It reads, “We succumbed to a painful defeat in Morocco because we were nowhere close to our best on the night. We know that we are capable of a much better performance than what we showed in Morocco. But it was a great learning experience for our young playing and technical team, majority of whom were experiencing their first taste of continental football away from home and against a very strong side like Wydad Athletic club”

“We have a chance to make amends in the confederations cup and this important lesson we have picked up in Morocco will inspire us to rise above the current disappointment, as we take inspiration from the motto of our club, “Never say die until the bones are rotten”. We are Hearts of Oak! We will live to fight another day to make the phobia family proud”

We apologize to our fans for not making the ultimate dream come true but we believe this is the time that the team needs you to accomplish the tasks ahead. The CAF champions league competition is a project we want to gradually make an impact on again after a very long absence. Therefore, we would like to remind our supporters to stay united as we have another qualification match for the group stages pf the confederations cup, and as we kick of the campaign to defend our Ghana Premier League title”
