Hearts of Oak Head Coach,
Kim Grant, says his team is getting stronger and they will win the Ghana
Premier League title when it resumes.
Hearts of Oak were eliminated by arch-rivals Asante Kotoko on Sunday in the Tier I Special Competition semi-final at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The Phobians lost the game on penalties by 5-4.
Despite the defeat to Kotoko, Kim Grant was pleased with the performance of his players in the competition and remained hopeful that they will win the league title when the new season starts.
“Everybody is disappointed by the outcome of the match. We gave out our all. The team is getting stronger and hopefully we will come back for the league title when it starts”, he told Accra based Happy FM.
Hearts of Oak missed the chance to end their 10-year trophy drought as they will now have to wait for another title in the coming season.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Felix Annan has congratulated his Asante Kotoko teammates for the victory over Hearts of Oak in the semifinals of the NC Special Competition.
The Porcupine Warriors defeated the Phobians 5-4 on penalties after an entertaining 1-1 draw following 90 minutes of action.

“Thank You Guys. This Is What You Made Me Look Like After The Win. Congrats to Everyone and for the Fans As well! The Victory Is Urs,” he posted on Twitter.
