Afriyie Barnieh talks life at Hearts, Sulley Muntari and Inkoom

Hearts of Oak star Daniel Afriyie Barnieh has been reviewing the 2021/22 Ghana football season, his performance and the campaign ahead.

The 21-year-old had a terrific display in Hearts campaign last season, defending the MTN FA Cup and qualifying for the Caf Confederation Cup.

Barnieh is full of praise for his teammates and coaching staff for a spectacular run in the domestic cup competition.

“It felt great to win the FA Cup again and increasing our trophy haul to five since Samuel Boadu joined us,” he said on Asempa FM.

“We had a poor start but we knew we had to focus on winning a title and the FA Cup was the only one left after some months. So our objectives were clear after the league.”

The forward then spoke on Samuel Boadu, commending his works and impact in his career.

“I think our coach has been key to a lot of the impact in the Hearts team and even myself.

“Having a good coach who listens and advises you as a player helps you improve every day in your work. We are proud of his work.”

Barnieh then highlighted the team’s campaign with the experienced duo and former Black Stars players, Sulley Muntari and Samuel Inkoom.


“I never dreamt of playing with Muntari and Inkoom. They have been helpful to the team this season.

“Muntari offers a lot of advice tactically and off the pitch to me and Inkoom helps us on aerial duels in the box.

“Sometimes, Muntari looks at the frontline and we train together on attacking moves when the coach provides the starting lineup, days before a game.”

Afriyie Barnieh then concluded with next season’s targets in mind.

“Personally, I’m a quiet type and don’t talk a lot before games and my targets or the team’s plans.

“But we know we have another campaign ahead of us and we will use our experience as a unit for the 2022/23 season.”
