Hearts of Oak captain Fatawu Mohammed has assured that the Phobians will be ready for the new season following the lifting of the ban on contact sports in Ghana.

President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo announced the easing of these restrictions last Sunday, in his 17th Covid-19 address to the nation.

And the Hearts of Oak skipper has welcomed this news insisting that the players have been starved for long and are eager to return to action.

“We welcome this news and, it is now time for us to get down to work as we look forward to the coming season with high hopes”, Fatawu told Hearts Media.

“We look forward to the start of preseason and, we are determined to go the extra mile to prepare ourselves well enough for the start of the new campaign”, he added.

The club is yet to announce arrangement for the start of the preseason campaign although the decision is imminent.

“As soldiers for the club, we are always on the standby for battle and, we are just waiting for the announcement for the start of our preseason programme”, Fatawu continued.

“Next season will be a good one for us if we prepare well for it, and, we are hopeful of a good preseason campaign to take us into the new season”, Fatawu said.

He asked the fans for their support saying, “we will need plenty of it going into the new season” and that they cannot fulfil this promise without the help of all Phobians.
