2021 Ghana Premier League: Huge Hearts win will send positive signal to management, believes Kosta Papic

Published on: 04 January 2021

Hearts of Oak coach, Kosta Papic believes his side's 6-1 win over Bechem United in the Premier League on Saturday will send a positive signal to management of the club to start believing in the players.

The Phobians secured back-to-back league wins for the first time this season at the Accra Sports stadium.

A brace from Victor Aidoo and a goal each from Abdul Manaf, Abdul Lawali, Ansah Botchwey and Benjamin Afutu saw Hearts cruise to comfortable victory.

"Honestly, it is very good for us to be scoring six goals and very good for us to win the game to come closer to those who are on top of us. Very good for the players to boost the morale and good for the management to start to believe in the players but this win is not doing anything if we don’t win the next game," he said in a post-match interview.

"We are still struggling tactically and technically to do something that is very important to us; that is to create more chances and score more goals. We used the advantage that we had and tactically we prepared for the second half."

He added, "Papic is not going to produce anything, players are going to produce the chances and score goals. My duty is to make them feel that it is possible and to try to score more goals than the opponent."

"Today, we scored six. We will see how many we are going to score the next week and the next week. We would try to score if the chance is there but if we are not trying then we are never going to score."

Coach Kosta Papic's side will face Elmina Sharks on match week eight of the on-going 2020/21 Ghana Premier League.
