Hearts to beef up squad ahead of CAF Champions League campaign


Hearts of Oak board member Frank Nelson Nwokolo has confirmed that the club will seek to strengthen the playing body in anticipation of their CAF Champions League campaign.

Hearts earned the spot to represent Ghana at the competition after being crowned champions of the Ghana Premier League for the 2020/2021 League season.

It is their first league title since the 2008/2009 league season.

Frank Nelson believes if Hearts of Oak’s objective is to dominate in the CAF Champions League adding to the current squad is non-negotiable.

“If we are going to go to Africa we have to make some additions to the team.

“We also need to do some introductions because we are going to play with big teams.

“We know our boys are very good but at the end of the day we want to prove that we equally are very good.

“The teams we are going to meet need to know that we are not there just to add up to the numbers but we are there for a reason.

“That reason is for us to do what we have done in the year 2000 and 2004 by lifting the trophies in Africa.

“Certainly we need those game changers and we will bring them into the club.

“We know they are there,” he told Startimes on the sidelines during their coronation.
