Published on: 27 May 2024

Hearts of Oak head coach, Aboubakar Ouattara has indicated that the team has no choice but to fight for all points from their remaining matches in the Ghana Premier League.

The tactician was left distraught on Sunday after his team suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of rivals Asante Kotoko in the Week 30 encounter of the league played at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

The defeat has dragged Hearts of Oak to 15th on the league table and just two points away from dropping into the relegation zone.

Speaking in his post-match interview, Coach Aboubakar Ouattara admitted that his team is under pressure and needs points urgently to avoid the unthinkable.

“I am not under pressure [but rather], it’s the team that’s under pressure because we need points to survive,” Coach Aboubakar Ouattara said.

Up next for Hearts of Oak, the Phobians will host Nations FC at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday, May 31.

Coach Aboubakar Ouattara has his eyes on all three points to improve the position of his team on the league table.
