Hearts of Oak travel to Libya for pre-season friendlies


Hearts of Oak will depart Accra for Libya with a 28-man delegation which includes players, technical team and key management members for pre-season games.

The Phobians have lined up two friendly games against Ittihad Tripoli and Tehaa sports on December 14 and 16 respectively.

“We are going there with a 28-man delegation and that includes players, technical team and key management members.” Hearts of Oak spokesman Opare Addo said.

“All documentations are ready and the Libyan club have sent us correspondence for ticketing and other travel arrangements to be facilitated.”

Meanwhile, head coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi believes these games will offer him an opportunity to smoothen the rough edges in his team.

“I am taking it day by day; everything including fitness, team play, to their skill to understanding each other, all aspects of football has to be improved,” he told Asempa Sports

“To look at our fast game, I think you can compare our fast game to the last game of last season and you can tell us what we have done in the pre-season period.”

These two games will be the third and fourth under Kenichi after drawing 1-1 with lowly ranked Sunshine Stars and losing 4-1 to Premier League side WAFA.
