The Phobians are without major silverware since 2009 and according to the former Eleven Wonders marksman, the target is to win the league title to end the trophy drought.

The enterprising winger known in football circles as ‘Di Maria’ has been exceptional since joining the rainbow boys. He has won seven man of the match prize between Eleven Wonders and Hearts of Oak, the highest for an individual after matchday 23.

In an interview with the Graphic Sports, Ibrahim welcomed pressure from Kotoko and other title-chasing sides going into the final league matches of the campaign.

“Everyone at the club is ready to make it happen,” said Ibrahim, who has won seven man of the match awards in the ongoing league season.

“It’s been ten years already and we want to end the league title drought for Hearts. We know what is at stake so we are working tirelessly to achieve that.

“We know there is pressure to win the league title but we are enjoying it, especially from Kotoko. It is going to be tough but I am hopeful we will triumph,” Ibrahim told the Graphic Sports.

Hearts of Oak will host Berekum Chelsea at the Accra Stadium on Sunday, with the focus of extending their four-match winning streak in the league.

Meanwhile, Asante Kotoko will face Aduana Stars in a tricky duel on Saturday when they travel to the Nana Agyemang Badu Park at Dormaa-Ahenkro.
