Observation: "Hearts of Oak have goalkeeping problem" - Sammy Adjei

LISTEN FEB 3, 2016

Ex-Hearts of Oak shot stopper, Sammy Adjei says the Accra giants indirectly have a goalkeeping problem going into the 2016 Ghana premier league billed for 20th February, 2016.

According to the former national goalie, his former side might face goalkeeping problems in the league should the club's current number one gloves man Soulama Abdoulaye gets a call-up into the Burkina Faso national team.

Adjei has raised questions regarding competition at the club's goalkeeping department insisting the other goalkeepers which include Samuel Akurugu and Seidu Matawakilu can't give the Burkinabe import the needed competition.

Soulama since joining the former premier league champions last season has enjoyed a lot of playing time in the post which the 32 year-old former Black Stars goalie believes it is bad for the club to be relying on the ageing goalie.

'I can say that, Hearts of Oak for me ahead of the coming season have a goalkeeping problem because Soulama Abdoulaye has monopolized the post, he has not been getting the needed competition when he gets a call up from his country. Hearts of Oak will be in problem so indirectly the club have a goalkeeping problem,' Adjei told Oman FM.

The Phobians will host New Edubiase in their 2015/16 Ghana premier league opener at the Accra Sports Stadium.
