Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu has taken a swipe at his former employers, Medeama SC, claiming the club did not give him any platform to exhibits his coaching traits.

Boadu, prior to the start of the second half of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League was appointed as the head coach of Hearts of Oak, replacing Kosta Papic.

After steering the Phobaisn to end their 12 years trophyless jinx, Medeama's Communication chief Patrick Akoto said his outfit offered a platform for the former Asokwa Deportivo gaffer to showcase his coaching prowess.

"We take extreme delight that we picked Samuel Boadu and gave him a huge platform," he said.

"Very few clubs or perhaps none at the Premier League level would have dared to take that risk especially when he was hugely unknown.

"But we believed in him and he has successfully guided Hearts to the league crown," he added.

But Boadu, who joined the Mauve and Yellows from third-tier side Asokwa Deportivo, has lashed out at the club for the claim.

"They should stop saying they gave me the platform, I came to work for them,” Boadu texted to Asempa FM.

However, Akoto reacted to his claim and said, “Posterity will judge him for what he has said.”

Meanwhile, Boadu will take on his former side, Medeama in the semifinal of the MTN FA Cup on Sunday at the Cape Coast Stadium.

Boadu joined Medeama from third-tier side Shooting Stars.
