Hearts of Oak are without doubt one of Ghana’s biggest ever clubs.
Aside their over 100-year history, Hearts of Oak are one of the country’s most successful clubs, winning over 30 domestic and continental laurels.
Hearts of Oak also placed 7th in CAF’s list of the best African clubs of the 20th century.
With the club celebrating 109 years since it was founded, today, let’s relive five of their biggest successes.
2000 CAF Champions League
Hearts of Oak began their memorable CAF Championship campaign against Guinean club, Horoya FC, beating them 3-2 on aggregate. In the next round, the Accra-based club beat DC Motema Pembe 4-3 on aggregate to seal a spot in the group stages of the competition.
Hearts finished top of a group which included Egyptian side, Al Ahly; Lobi Stars of Nigeria, and Senegalese club, Jeanne d’Arc, without losing a single game. With the top sides in the two groups qualifying for the final, Hearts faced Tunisian giants Esperance in a two-legged tie. After winning the first leg in Tunisia 2-1, with goals from Ishmael Addo and Emmanuel Osei Kuffour, Hearts won the second leg 3-1 with both players getting on the scoresheet yet again (Kuffour with a brace). Kuffour scored 10 goals to finish as the tournament’s top marksman as Hearts won their first, and so far only, Champions League crown.
