Former defender of Accra Hearts of Oak, Sam Johnson, believes Asante Kotoko’s Seydou Zerbo and Samuel Boadu of Hearts of Oak will be under pressure to deliver on Sunday when the two biggest clubs in Ghana meet.
Kotoko will commence their 2022/23 betPawa Premier League against the Phobians at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday while Hearts will play their third game after gathering just a point in two GPL games against Aduana Stars and Great Olympics.
Hearts’ performances so far have led to public backlash while Kotoko are in the same situation after crashing out of the CAF Champions League against Kadiogo.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Nhyira FM, the ex-Hearts of Oak defender, Sam Johnson, stressed both Zerbo and Boadu are under pressure to get the desired results over the weekend.
“Both [coaches] are under pressure because both teams haven’t performed well at the beginning of the season,” he said.
“Hearts will say, they’re happy Kotoko has been eliminated from the CAF champions league so, they are satisfied with their 1-1 scoreline against [Olympics] but if Kotoko had won, the [fans] wouldn’t have forgiven Hearts.
“So the two teams are under pressure but it will be on Kotoko compared to Hearts because they couldn’t qualify to the next stage of the champions league and that’s another pressure,” he said
The Super Clash is scheduled to kick off at 15:00 GMT at the Baba Yara Stadium.
