Delay in league start won’t affect our performance in Africa- Herbert Addo

Hearts of Oak coach Herbert Addo says his side are ready for Africa despite the lack of competitive domestic matches due to the delay in the Ghana Premier League.

The Rainbow Club, who finished third last season, will play in the qualifiers of the 2015 CAF Confederation Cup after Heart of Lions withdrew.

But a court case between relegated King Faisal and the Ghana Football Association has seen the 2014/2015 Ghana Premier League put on hold

Hearts will know their opponents when the draw is held in Cairo on 11 December but the club have been working hard for the task ahead.

“We are not really bothered and we don’t want to start making excuses because we are confident of our abilities as a team,” Addo told

“I do not think that the delay in the league will have any telling effect on our performance in Africa.

“That is why the Management and the Board have been supportive of the programs of the technical team, and so far everything is going on smoothly.”

Hearts won the CAF Champions League in the 2000 and the maiden edition of the CAF Confederation Cup.
