Head coach of Hearts of Oak, Samuel Boadu has attributed their poor start of the season to fatigue.
The reigning champions are yet to record a win after games played.
Hearts of Oak have lost one and drawn trice, leaving them at the 15th position with 3 points.
“There is nothing [like pressure] on me, I know myself. Maybe from the fourth match going, things will change. When Hearts start picking up, we will be unstoppable,” he said.
After failing to impress in their fourth fixture of the season as promised, Boadu cast a distraught figure, indicating that Hearts’ cumulating poor results are due to player fatigue.
“It is quite unfortunate that we lost this game but we came in to win the three points so it’s unfortunate to be down by two goals. I always keep saying that there is fatigue. During the first half, we played a very good game but after recess when we came back, you could see that the boys are very tired and they cannot pass and distribute the balls.”Boadu said in his post-match press conference.
Despite the slow unimpressive start, Boadu is still confident and suggests that there is time for the rainbow club to turn around their fortunes – just as they did last season. He indicates that the woes of the players are merely psychological, so the club will work its way back to its best.
“We have a long way to go, it’s not yet over. This is a competition so we are in it, we are pushing harder to climb the ladder. This is psychological. We need to psych them and move on.”
After four league games, Hearts of Oak have managed to score only four goals and conceded the same number in the process.
However, Boadu will be looking to start a turnaround when they play Medeama SC in the matchday five games.
