Hearts of Oak midfielder Emmanuel Nettey has opened up how he felt playing his first game against Kumasi Asante Kotoko in match day 6 of the Ghana Premier League.
The Kumasi based club inflicted a 2-1 win over Hearts of Oak at their own backyard.
Nettey expressing how he felt playing his first El Clasico said, “Prior to the game, whiles at the dressing room I called one my friends Ansah Botwe so we went to the wash room and then I heard the noise of the supporters, so I told him Charlie, I have always wanted to play in such games”
“At the wash room I advise myself not to overdo things. So while coming from the tunnel to the pitch for warm-up, I told myself one thing that, I need not to raise up my head to look at anybody, just get onto the field, settle down and then you can raise up your head”
“In fact I couldn’t raise up my head throughout the warm-up. So after 15 minutes of warm-ups I decided to raise my head up to see the atmosphere and realize the support has increase for both clubs”
“Since I have had a strings of good games for the club, the clasico was a game I wanted to play more than I could but then I realized that if I try to do more I am going to have a bad game” he told Citi FM in an interview
