Accra Hearts of Oak are keen on a return to continental club football prominence with success in the upcoming Special Competition from the Normalization Committee as a route to the CAF Champions league.
Having won Africa’s top club competition in year 2000, Hearts of Oak succeeded in winning the continent’s inaugural second-tier continental club competition, the CAF Confederation cup in 2004 but have struggled to impose themselves on African club football since then.
With representation for the country’s Champions league participation at stake for the team that wins the Special Normalization cup which kicks off across Ghana this weekend, Hearts Of Oak bosses are setting their sights high for treasure.
Head coach Kim Grant has been intense at training with his efforts to inject fresh ideas into the club with backing from his bosses. The former Black Stars player is optimistic of the chances of his team in the Special Normalization cup and is thrilled with the resumption of action on the local football scene.
