Kwame Opare Addo, Head of Communications at Hearts of Oak has called on the supporters of the club to stay positive ahead of their Caf Champions League tie against Guinean side, CL Kamsar.
The Phobians were originally expected to travel to Guinea for the first leg in the preliminary round of the game this weekend.
However, due to the political crisis in the country, the Confederations of African Football [Caf] in a statement said the game will be played in just one tie at the Acra Sports Sports Stadium.
Hearts of Oak having failed to win the last two friendlies played, the uninspiring results have led to the fans questioning the quality of players ahead of the Africa campaign.
But the club’s Public Relations Officer is calling on the supporters front to believe in the players and also urged them to come in the numbers to support the team.
“We did not start the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season well but we ended up winning the trophy,” Opare Addo told Asempa FM.
“We know some people would not like us to progress and make an impact but we know what we are doing behind closed doors.
“I will tell the supporters not to panic ahead of the game but we trust these players and I am sure come Sunday, we will the three points.
“We have watched Kamsar and we will be able to match them,” he added.
Opare Addo also stressed that the club will soon release the ticket prices for the team.
