Hearts of Oak assistant coach Henry Wellington says he has drawn a lot of positives from the just ended G6 despite failing to lift the trophy.
The Phobians placed second after losing 3-4 on penalties in their final game to eventual winners Aduana Stars – In the game at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi on Sunday, Hearts of Oak shot into the lead in the 20th minute through Patrick Razak.
Wellington’s side couldn’t defend their lead as they allowed Aduana Stars to dictate the pace of the game, and the Dormaa based side grabbed the equalizer in the 68th minute courtesy Nathaniel Asamoah.
“We started the tournament badly but at the end I must appreciate what the boys [players] did, we lost by a penalty shoot-out so we will go and continue for the upcoming season,” Wellington said after the game.
“From the onset I said the team is not complete but I tried to get a team to come to this competition, so I must say they [players]have tried, so at least where we need to beef up we will go and beef up and start our preparation,” he added.
