Accra Hearts of Oak SC continue to improve the playing squad with the inclusion of new faces in the ongoing transfer window. The Phobians added former Bechem United FC forward Abednegoh Tetteh to their striking department as part of their transfer wish list in the second registration window.
Already blessed with a pool of players to select from, 442gh.com takes a look at the dream team for the Phobians if their transfer wish list is completed.
Goalkeeper: Richard Attah
The former Elmina Sharks FC custodian is set to keep his place in the team at least until the end of the season. The lanky shot stopper has done enough to unseat Richmond Ayi and Ben Mensah from the number one spot and is expected to keep his place for the near future.
Right Back: Sumaila Larry Ibrahim
The energetic defender belied his bench role to snatch an automatic starting role under Edward Odoom. The former Auroras defender feasted on the platform given him and is expected to keep Christopher Bonney and Mohammed Fatawu away from the number two slot.
Left Back: Raddy Okembe Ovouka
One of the most players in the league as a whole after a slow start to his Phobians career is Raddy Ovouka. The Congolese import relegated Williams Denkyi to the bench and seems to have cemented his place in the team with some jaw dropping performances on weekly basis. Arguably the most in-form Hearts of Oak SC player at the moment and will take a lot to be benched.
Center Back: Mohammed Alhassan
The former WAFA SC defender made a slow start to his personal season but picked up at the right time and is beginning to show why Hearts of Oak SC snatched him. His calm nature at the back remains one of his strongest asset as a center back as he continues to reclaim his 2019 form. The center is guaranteed a place at least under this class of players in camp.
Center Back: Robert Addo Sowah
One of the most underrated players in the camp of Accra Hearts of Oak SC is Robert Addo Sowah. The versatile defender can play in a mordern 3-back or typical double pivot in front of the goalkeeper. His place in this team is virtually guaranteed.
Central Midfielder: Benjamin Afutu
Benjamin Afutu peaked at the right time for Accra Hearts of Oak SC and will take explosive talent from the local scene to be benched. The former Karela United FC ball winner is rewriting his own version of history with some classic passing from deep midfield position. A brace of goals against Great Olympics FC capped his resurgence in recent times.
Attacking Midfielder: Emmanuel Nettey
Nettey has suddenly created a bond with the teaming fan base of Accra Hearts of oak SC within the shortest possible time. The former Inter Allies ball winner is gradually earning the class he deserves with some fine passes for the wide men.
Right Wing: Patrick Razak
How feared the Phobians will become if they can woe their former attacker into their goal shy attacking machinery. The former Bazooka FC attacker will not come easier but will certainly add class to the attack of Edward Odoom’s side.
Left Wing: Michelle Sarpong
Michelle Sarpong affirmed his readiness for first team spot with fine display against Great Olympics in the Mantse derby. The left footed winger will provide the missing creativity in the final third of the pitch. His dribbling skills and timely passes will provide the needed tonic.
Supporting Striker: Joseph Esso
The former Ebusua Dwarfs attacker has played the major part of this season attacking from the flanks with only one goal under his name in the league. A swap of roles from the flanks into the number 10 slot will certainly help Joseph Esso and the Phobians as a whole.
Striker: Abednego Tetteh
A new striker expected to battle Kofi Kordzi for the number 9 role up front. The former Bechem United FC striker recently completed his paperwork and will be favorite to lead ahead of Kordzi when the league resumes. His partnership in the fearsome quartet will certainly end the goal crisis under Edward Odoom.
A starting formation of 4-2-3-1 is expected to be used by Edward Odoom when his full compliment comes to the party.
