Hearts of Oak boss Matic insists title race not over

Hearts of Oak head coach Slavko Matic remains confident in his team’s ability to win the Ghana Premier League title despite inconsistent results.

The Phobians are now fifth after losing to Real Tamale United on Sunday night and could drop one more if Kotoko do not lose to Accra Lions tonight. Hearts have also only won one of their last five games and are now six points behind leaders Aduana Stars.

That notwithstanding, the Serbian gaffer is hopeful Hearts of Oak can turn things around given the number of games remaining.

“Of course[It’s not over yet]. A lot of games. About 18 games. We still have a chance. We must believe more. We must work harder.

“The defeat is painful but we must continue. Tomorrow is another day. We need to prepare for the next match. This is football,” he said confidently after their defeat to Real Tamale United.

With their exits from the FA Cup and CAF Confederations Cup, the 2020/2021 champions have set their sights solely on winning the league title. Their next chance to secure a win will come on Saturday, February 11, 2023, as they face off against Berekum Chelsea.
