Head coach of Accra Hearts of Oak, Samuel Boadu has pledged to remain calm ahead of their game against Wydad Athletic Club.

The Phobians recorded a 1-0 win in the first leg of the preliminary round of the Caf Champions League at the Accra Sports Stadium over the weekend.

However, the game was marred by the actions of Samuel Boadu in the dugout during the game.

The gaffer was cautioned in the game following an intense confrontation with referee Helder Martins de Carvalho.

The coach confronted the referee as he felt his players being undone by the centre referee during the game, leading to him being shown the card.

The booking was not the first Boadu has received this season, as he has previously suffered same faith in some games already this season including their friendly games.

Prior to Sunday’s fixture, Boadu was booked in the friendly game against Tema Youth. He was also sent off in the friendly encounter against Togo’s Asko Karalast month while being warned in the win over CI Kamsar.

In June, he got similarly carded when after kicking a bottle in anger during the crucial Super Clash against Kotoko.

However, the coach says he has taken lessons from his book and hopes to see changes ahead of the second leg game against Wydad in Morocco.

“I have learnt a lot from the yellow card I received today so things will change going forward,” the former Medeama boss said after the game.

Isaac Mensah’s first-half goal from a Salifu Ibrahim cross was enough for the Ghana Premier League champions.

The game has been scheduled to kick off at 18:00GMT at the Stade V Mohammed on Sunday.
