Even Brazil were humiliated 7-1 by Germany – ‘Unremorseful’ Alhaji Akambi slams Hearts of Oak critics

Alhaji Brimah Akambi, Board Member of Hearts of Oak, has taken a swipe at critics of the cub following their elimination from the CAF Confederations Cup claiming even Brazil were humiliated 7-1 by Germany during the World Cup.

The Ghana Premier League side have dominated the headlines for the wrong reason following the collapse of their Africa campaign.

Hearts of Oak exited the CAF Confederation Cup after suffering a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Algerian side JS Saoura to end the tie 4-2 on aggregates.

Prior to that, Samuel Boadu and his charges were humiliated by Wydad Club Athletic after losing 6-2 on aggregates scoreline to the Moroccans in the CAF Champions League playoffs.

The defeat means the Phobians have conceded as many as 10 goals in two away games in their African campaign.

However, according to Alhaji Akambi, Hearts of Oak are not the first team to lose by a huge margin in football.

“Even the almighty Brazil were humiliated 7-1 by Germany and when that happened, did Brazil stop playing football?” he said on Kumasi based FOX FM in an interview.

Alhaji Akambi explained that losing by a huge scoreline is not the end of the world hence the club will bounce back.

“In football, there are three outcomes. Win, draw and defeat. So defeats are normal in football. We didn’t like the result but it has happened and we have to move on,” Alhaji Akambi added.

Hearts of Oak were expected to play Asante Kotoko on matchday 6 of the Ghana Premier League but the game has been postponed due to the delay in flight for the team to return home after their game against JS Souara.
