Samuel Boadu, the head coach of Hearts of Oak has insisted his side is determined to make an impact in Africa.
The Phobians who were crowned 2020/21 Ghana Premier League champions will represent the country in the 2021/22 Caf Champions League.
According to the former Medeama SC gaffer who steered the Phobians to end their 12 years trophy drought believes they have the materials to make an impact.
“We are a young team with a lot of quality and that will really help us in our African campaign," Boadu told Graphic Sports.
"This is going to be my first time in such a competition and I know most of the players too are going to play in Africa for the first time, but we are determined to leave a mark,” Coach Boadu emphasised.
Talking about the current form of Hearts, the young tactician noted that his relationship with the players had brought unity among the playing body.
Coach Boadu said he allowed the players to open up to him, which turned out to be the game-changer after taking over the club.
“I don’t see them as my subordinates because I relate with them like my brothers and that has really helped us.
"I allow them to open up to me about anything and that allows them to take part in making decisions,” Coach Boadu disclosed further.
Boadu joined Hearts of Oak on three and half year deal.
