The speedster who joined Accra Hearts of Oak with a glorious ambition of wining with the club lost his position after the club signed its new manager Samuel Boadu.
Patrick ‘PR17’ Razak who was a regular gradually lost his position in the first team after he played in bits from the start of the season. His play time almost amounted to nothing and this frustrated the Phobia winger but his love for the Continental Club Master remained intact.
Over the period he lost face with Coach Boadu who saw and used other potentials above Razak in the team he was building. Many fans did not understand why a tormentor in Patrick Razak was been treated like that but the player stood his ground and promised to prove a point when given the chance again.
Things got worse as he was left out of the teams registration for the following period and the frustration got too much that the speedster almost looked set for the exit with many local and foreign clubs chasing after his signature.
Patrick Razak was the fans favourite as he could light your day watching him sprint past opposition players with ease and on his day, he could show bolt with ease.
After Accra Hearts of Oak started having problems winning games, the speakers of the club who happen to be the fans started to get their voices heard. It wasn’t for a new player but rather for Patrick Razak to be given the chance to add his quality and experience on the field as he doubles as a former Ghana Black Stars player.
With many thinking coach Boadu ignored the comments roaming on airwaves, Patrick Razak was registered on the last day of the second transfer window. This was a test he had endured and needed to make it worth the while.
In the Super Clash against Asante Kotoko for the prestigious President’s Cup, Coach Boadu threw Razak on the field and that was a story he will always remember.
Patrick Razak from the inside of his own half bolted with the ball with two Kumasi Asante Kotoko players chasing after his. He calmly played past Ibrahim Danlad and gave Accra Hearts of Oak a sweet a beautiful finish to earn them the President’s Cup and a much needed win over their rivals.
Blazing in happiness, Razak showcased his love and commitment to the club and has promised to bring more to the pitch should the Coach trust him with any role.
