Karela United’s forward, Emmanuel Owusu Boakye, has opened up about the emotional toll their poor run in the Premier League is taking on the players.
Boakye’s revelation came after he was named Man of the Match in Karela’s 1-1 draw with Hearts of Oak at the Aliu Mahama Stadium on Saturday, November 4, 2023.
Despite Boakye’s early goal in the 6th minute, Hamzah Issah equalized for Hearts of Oak in the 40th minute. This draw extended Karela’s winless streak to seven matches.
They have managed only one win, suffered two losses, and secured six draws in their nine games. Currently, they hold the 14th position in the league standings with 9 points, and the risk of falling into the danger zone looms as matchday 9 concludes.
Boakye described the situation as challenging, emphasizing that the team and coaches are putting in their best efforts, but results are elusive.
“It’s not easy for us. We are doing everything in our capacity just like the coaches are also doing but it’s just not coming. Day in day out we check the league table. It’s not easy for us. We’re having sleepless nights,” he told StarTimes at full time.
