Accra representative of Asante Kotoko Edmund Ackah has taken a swipe at arch-rivals Hearts of Oak ahead of their CAF Confederation Cup match against Kariobangi Sharks.
The Porcupine Warriors would need to avoid a stalemate and impose any form of victory to progress to the next stage of the competition.
Reports in the local media suggest that Hearts of Oak are ready to lend a hand to the Kenyan side in a bid to eliminate their sworn adversaries from the competition.
But the report seems not to have gone down well for the Kumasi-based side’s official, who claims the Phobians have nothing better to offer to their own team let alone to help Kariobangi Sharks eliminate them.
“Those Hearts of Oak people who want to help the Kenyans eliminate us, what good thing can they offer their own team. I mean Hearts of Oak itself is on a sharp nosedive. They currently have a bad team and are not one of the credible clubs,” Edmund Ackah said on Friday on Nhyira FM.
“I don’t rate Hearts of Oak now at all. I don’t take them seriously. The club of the moment in Ghana is Kotoko.
“Hearts of Oak themselves don’t have a stronger team to compete against us. So what is it that they have to aid the Kariobangi team,” he added.
The much-talked-about encounter is expected to kickoff at 3:30pm.
