Former Hearts of Oak midfielder Lawrence Adjah Tetteh is confident the Phobians can make a huge impact in the ongoing CAF Champions League competition.
The Phobians will progress to the money zone for the first time in many years if they are able to eliminate Moroccan giants, Wydad Athletic Club this weekend.
The 2000 Champions League winners goes into the reverse fixture with a 1-0 advantage and will hope for a favourable scoreline to secure qualification to the group stages of the Champions League.
The Ghanaian giants inflicted a 1-0 win over their opponents last Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Isaac Mensah’s 41st minute strike was enough for the Phobians to record an important victory on home turf.
The winner of both legs will progress to the money zone whereas the loser drops to the CAF Confederations Cup.
Speaking to Koforidua-based Aben FM, Adjah Tetteh expressed optimism about the Phobians making a huge impact in Africa in this campaign due to their outstanding performance in recent times.
“The players did very well in the first leg because everybody was pleased with their performance. They played like a consistent club in Africa so I think they did well against WAC of Morocco”
“Hearts of Oak can make a big impact; you can see they are very determined to make history. I hope the team qualify with ease to the money zone. Should they improve their performance a bit in Morocco they can progress ahead of WAC with ease”
Hearts of Oak will depart Ghana for Morocco today with a 24-man squad.
