Samuel Boadu started life as Accra Hearts of Oak coach with a thumping 4-0 win over 10-man WAFA at the Accra Sports Stadium in week 17 of the Ghana Premier League on Sunday.
After Abukari Ibrahim Patrick Razak’s close range finish gave the Phobians a first half lead before they added three more in the second half from Victor Aidoo, Raddy Ovouka and Michelle Sarpong to hand Boadu, who joined the Phobians after quitting Medeama last week, a dream start to life in Accra.
Elsewhere, Accra Great Olympics put on the breaks on Dreams FC with a shock 1-0 win against Vladislav Viric’s men in Dawu.
