Oly fire first salvo against Hearts… Experience will win for us – Tahiru

richard kingstonACCRA Great Olympics midfielder Razak Tahiru says the side is primed to secure a famous win in the local derby against Hearts of Oak on Sunday,.

Olympics will be playing hosts on the resumption of the Ghanaian top flight against their resurgent Accra rivals.

While the Wonder club are undefeated in three successive games in the First Capital Plus League, Hearts can also boast a good run of form both including their impressive strides in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Sunday’s clash will thus present a fine opportunity to settle conclusively, the real kings of Accra.

But Olympics midfielder Tahiru is confident his side will emerge winners.

“We are preparing well for the game, we have enough quality to beat Accra Hearts of Oak on Sunday,” he told Footballmadeinghana.

“The inclusion of the experienced players have even made us stronger.

“This is a local derby and we know Accra Hearts of Oak well, we will go all out and achieve the needed results. This is a must-win game for us.”

Meanwhile, Ghana-based South African defender Shaun October has said he is disgusted over xenophobia attacks in his country which have seen many Africans killed in recent days.

The right-back, who plays for Hearts of Oak, said he is ashamed to be a South African living in another African country where is is treated excellently.

The recent spate of xenophobia, which has badly dented the image of the country, has saddened the football industry which has such close ties with many foreign players, coaches and fans.

October has won many hearts in Ghana for his display for the Phobians and says he is ashamed by what is happening in his country which has seen many Africans killed.

“What the f*** South Africa!! Stop the Xenophobia. I am ashamed to be in a foreign country where they treat me so well,” October wrote on his Facebook wall.

“Is this a colour thing? because I don’t see white people doing any killing or burning.”

South Africa has in recent days witnessed a spate of some of the most violent xenophobic attacks on other African nationals living in the country claiming they are taking their jobs.

The violence perpetrated on foreign nationals have badly dented the image of the country in the eyes of the international community.
