Hearts of Oak center-forward, Kofi Kordzi has set sights on winning the golden boot for the 2021/22 Premier League season.
Despite Hearts of Oak’s struggles in the first round of the season, Kofi Kordzi has been fantastic when called upon by head coach Samuel Boadu.
Kofi Kordzi after the first round has scored 7 goals for the Phobians in 8 starts, 4 less than current top scorer Frank Etouga.
“My target is to win the goal-king title and I’m going to work very hard towards that goal during this second round,” Kofi Kordzi said as quoted by Ghanaiantimes.com.gh.
Kordzi has also vowed to help Hearts of Oak get their season back on track after an abysmal first round. However, he will have to start playing regularly to help his side do so.
The 27-year has struggled for playing minutes in recent weeks, failing to start any of the last 4 games. In the scoreless draw against Asante Kotoko last Sunday, Kordzi was expected to start.
Howbeit, he started the game from the bench and was introduced into the game in the 76th minute.
Explaining the decision, Boadu said: “It depends on the training not that he scores a goal in a match every day, that doesn’t mean I should put him in. What we rehearse at the training will give you the chance.
“I see it like those starting are ahead of him,” Boadu told press after the game,” he added.
Hearts of Oak will start the second round of the season with an away game against Legon Cities at the El-Wak Stadium on Saturday.
The Phobians after the first round of the season sit in 7th place with 24 points, 12 points leaders Asante Kotoko.
