Hearts players admitted I deserved Man of the Match award
Kojo Obeng Jnr. scored a brace for Hearts of Oak and experienced forward Hans Kwofie also scored twice in the game for AshantiGold. The technical study group named Hearts of Oak's Patrick Razak as the best player of the game which according to some observers Yaw Annor should have won the accolade. Speaking in an interview on Happy Sports with Ohene-Bampoe Brenya, on losing out of the man of the match award to Patrick Razak he said, "I was motivated to play against Hearts of Oak because they are a big club. I didn't play the opening match so I gave all my best in this game when I had the opportunity. Some of the Hearts players said I deserved the man of the match", he told Happy 98.9FM. His point was also buttressed by teammate Hans Kwofie who scored a brace in the game, that he deserved the man of the match award.
