Hearts mentor Kim Grant claims he is ‘proud of his boys’ regardless of their defeat to Kumasi Asante Kotoko in the semi-final stage of the NC’s Distinctive Level of competition.
The Phobians had been knocked out of the level of competition by means of penalties following drawing 1-1 with Kotoko in regulation time.
Defensive stalwart Mohammed Alhassan who returned from the Black Stars camp not long ago missed his penalty to give Kotoko a 5-4 get.
But Grant has commended his players for the manufacturer of football they marketed to their supporters and admirers in the opposition.
According to him the players lived up to the club’s ‘never say die’ creed and gave almost everything on the pitch these days.
“We thoroughly dominated and managed the video game. What I would like to say is I’m so very pleased of the boys for the reason that I couldn’t request for just about anything superior from them. They held on likely. We managed the recreation from the next half and I attempted to make adjustments to preserve the momentum going to place them (Kotoko) on the back again foot”.
“We had one penalty disallowed and we acquired a 2nd. That never ever say die angle, which is what I was on the lookout for and the depth. The first 15 minutes we ended up a little little bit probably nervous but as soon as they scored the goal we bought again into it. Total, I’m pretty very pleased of this team”.
Hearts who have also been knocked out of the Tier 2 competition will now have to continue on their rebuilding system.
A single of the locations Grant will appear to bolster is the putting office as its pretty obvious that the existing crop of strikers are not as medical as he would want.
Kotoko on the other hand, proceed their journey in each competitions. They will perform AshantiGold in the semi-last of Tier 2 on Wednesday right before the finals towards Karela on June 23.
