It's a shame for us to lose to Elmina Sharks- Hearts asst. Coach Edward Odoom

Published on: 16 April 2018

Assistant Coach of Accra Hearts of Oak Edward Nii Odoom has described their defeat to Elmina Sharks as a shame and lambasted the players fortheir poor attitude on the day. 

The Rainbow Club lost 2-1 at home to visiting Elmina Sharks at the Cape Coast Stadium on Saturday to halt their two game winning run.

Felix Addo and Daniel Crenstil both scored for Sharks in the first half before Malik Akowuah halved the deficit in the second half, but his efforts was not enough as the Phobians succumbed to their third defeat of the season.

Edward Nii Odoom, who joined the technical bench of Hearts of Oak at the beginning of the season from Tema Youth, was disappointed with the result.

"The boys didn't play the way we asked them to play, in fact we lost the midfield totally and it's a shame for a club like Accra Hearts of Oak playing against a club like Elmina Sharks losing the midfield in the first half. In fact the boys have disappointed us," he said after the game.

The former Tema Youth tactician questioned the players attitudes, insisting they had a wrong approach to the game and were very lackadaisical in the first half.

"I won't say the technical men have not lifted up. I have already told you the players have disappointed us. They have really disappointed us. Football is about attitude and if the players have a positive attitude you will see something better but I think their attitude is no good at all."

The Accra based club, who are using the Cape Coast Stadium as their make shift home have now dropped to the 6th position on the table.

Hearts will next travel to the CAM Park to play Karela United in match day 8 of the Ghana Premier League.
