Asamoah Boateng Afriyie unfazed by pressure ahead of Hearts of Oak move

Striker Asamoah Boateng Afriyie, currently playing for Nations FC, has expressed his readiness to handle the pressure that comes with playing for Accra Hearts of Oak.

The 26-year-old forward, who is set to join the Phobians in the ongoing transfer window, believes that pressure is an inherent part of life and he is well-equipped to deal with it.

In an interview with Happy FM, as monitored by, Afriyie said, “Life is all about pressure. It’s up to you to know how to deal with it. It’s part of us from day one. Every aspect of our life involves pressure. If you don’t succeed in life, there’s pressure. If you succeed, there’s pressure too. I think I’m giving myself pressure, but I’m working hard to reach my goals. I know how to handle the pressure.”

Hearts of Oak had a challenging season, narrowly avoiding relegation in the 2023/24 Ghana Premier League. As they look towards the 2024/25 season, the club is focusing on strengthening its squad with new signings. Afriyie, who is already in Accra, is expected to undergo a medical examination this week before signing a contract that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2026.

Afriyie scored 12 goals across competitions for Nations FC, which finished seventh in the league.
