We are sorry- Hearts release statement after disastrous performance against Wydad
Accra Hearts of Oak have release a statement to fans of the club, reacting to their abysmal performance in Morocco against Wydad Casablanca in the CAF Champions League.
The Phobians suffered their heaviest defeat in Africa’s elite competition after succumbing to a 6-1 defeat at the Mohammed V Stadium in Casablanca.
According to the club, the loss serves a huge learning lesson for their ‘massively inexperienced’ team.
Hearts also apologized to their fans for the woeful performance on Sunday night, insisting they will build on the experience.
The Moroccan champions thrashed the Ghanaian giants 6-1 at the Mohamed V Stadium in Casablanca to book their place in the group stage.
The Wydadis qualify on a 6-2 aggregate after losing 1-0 to Hearts last week at the Accra Sports Stadium.
For now, the Rainbow club will now drop to the CAF Confederation Cup, where they will compete for a place in the group stage of the second tier tournament.
Hearts of Oak will now shift their attention to the defence of their Ghana Premier League title, when they face Legon Cities in the first game of the 2021/22 season.
