Coach of Accra Hearts of Oak, Edward Nii Odoom has stated that he has a team strong enough to compete in Africa should conditions allow it.
Odoom has been in charge of Hearts of Oak on an interim basis but has struggled for a consisted run of form until the suspension of the Ghana Premier League season on March 15, with the Phobians 8th on the league table.
“The conditions around the Coronavirus pandemic can’t make us play in Africa. This is because you wouldn’t know the actual conditions in the country you are going to play in. You have to ensure that everyone is safe.
But when it is about playing in Africa, my team is ready but we cannot play because of COVID-19.
Accra Hearts of Oak have not played in Africa since 2015, when they succumbed to Esperance de Tunis in the last round of qualifying for CAF Confederation Cup group stages.
