Hearts of Oak coach, Martin Koopman has stated that he is disappointed with the result against Real Tamale United in their first game of the season. 

The Rainbow Club was stunned by Real Tamale United (RTU) in their matchday one game at the Aliu Mahama Stadium on Friday night.

Owusu Afriyie scored late during the game as the home side snatched all three points to kickstart their season on a good note.

Speaking after the game, the Dutch gaffer said they also have to be more aggressive in games and not only focus on playing nice football.

"If you lose, you are always disappointed but I think it was a very nice game," the Dutch gaffer said.

"It was a fighting game and of course, we like to play football but if you cannot play football, you must fight also," he added.

Hearts of Oak will host Nsoatreman FC in their matchday two games at the Accra Sports Stadium next week.
