‘Humble’ Richard Attah claims Hearts of Oak don’t have a first-choice goalkeeper

In an interview, Richard Attah, who is known as Accra Hearts of Oak’s first-choice goalkeeper, said the club does not have a permanent number one goalkeeper.

The 25-year-old shot-stopper held the post with twelve caps and six clean sheets to his name for the majority of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League call-off season.

Attah said no goalkeeper is superior at the Phobians camp and it depends only on what happens to the coaches before the match to determine who holds the post.

“No one can say to himself that he is the number goalkeeper for Hearts,” he said in a interview.

“All of the club’s goalkeepers are the same just that I got the chance to be in the post. The fact I hold the post doesn’t mean I ‘m better than they are.

He continued: “Normally the coaches talk to us before games and select the goalkeeper who deserves to keep the post in that particular game. Therefore, I cannot say that I’m the Hearts’ first pick.”

The former goalkeeper of Elmina Sharks fought off competition from Benjamin Mensah and Richmond Ayi to the number one of the club, although he says he is not the number.

On its social media handles this week, Hearts of Oak revealed that Attah has extended his tenure with the club by three more years.
