Liberty Professionals head coach David Ocloo admits last weekend’s painful defeat against Hearts of Oak served as a motivation factor which saw his side ending WAFA’s 46 games unbeaten run at home in the Ghana Premier League.
The scientific soccer lads last weekend at home lost 2-1 to regional rivals Hearts of Oak courtesy Kofi Kordzi’s late strike which broke the hearts of the Dansoman-based club. A game they were on course to win after Michael Sefah had put them ahead on the 1st minute, the Phobians scored two quick goals on the 86th and 89th minutes to snatch the victory from Liberty.
However, Elvis Kyei Baffour and Alhassan Mubarak goals for Liberty stunned WAFA at Sogakope. In a post-match interview, David Ocloo explained what did the magic for his side.
“We came here (Sogakope) with a plan and my boys executed it into perfection. We decided to play the medium pressing then we hit them on the counter so that the transition will be swift and we did that”
“The boys were very motivated because of the loss against Hearts of Oak because we were nearly there but unfortunately we lost so I used that to motivate them that if we could play like that with Hearts then we should beat WAFA and they took it”
In their opening six games this season, Liberty have managed to amass 9 points- two wins, three draws.
