Stephen Appiah tips Hearts to rule over Kotoko
Ex-Ghana skipper Stephen Appiah has tipped Hearts of Oak to beat rivals Asante Kotoko in Sunday's 'Super Clash' in Kumasi.
The two biggest clubs in the West African country meeting is the one that whets appetites to the point of salivation.
The race for this season's Ghana Premier League has been nipped and tucked and despite Kotoko's healthy 10-point lead against their sworn-rivals, defeat for either side could see dressing room tumbling.
The 31-year-old all all-round box-to-box midfielder who played for Hearts between 1995-97 wants his boyhood club to silence the Porcupine Warriors.
“I know what I'm going to say will not make some people happy but I played for Hearts and I'm a fan of the club so I expect them to win on Sunday,” Appiah told Happy Sports.
“But the most important thing is that the game must pass without an incident that will make us count our loss.
“I pray the game goes on without any problems and that fans should go out there, have fun and come back home in one piece."
He added that “After all it's just a game. The most important thing is we're one people. But I believe it will be exciting even though I want Hearts to win.”
