Hearts of Oak coach, Edward Nii Odoom says his outfit is strong enough to compete in Africa.
The interim gaffer, as quoted by Citi Sports, asserts that the Covid-19 pandemic makes it impossible to risk playing in Africa but adds that his team is capable enough to play any Caf competition.
“The conditions around the Coronavirus pandemic can’t make us play in Africa. This is because you wouldn’t know the actual conditions in the country you are going to play in.
“You have to ensure that everyone is safe.
“But when it is about playing in Africa, my team is ready but we cannot play because of COVID-19.
The Phobians have not played in Africa since a loss to Esperance de Tunis in the last round of qualifying for the 2015/16 CAF Confederation Cup group stages.
Odoom’s side is lying 8th in the current season’s Ghana Premier League standings.
That said, a continental appearance for the Rainbow Boys is highly impossible.
