Ghana Premier League icon Bernard Dong Bortey has named the team he expects to win the title in the ongoing campaign.
The 2020-21 campaign has been underway for the past 8 match weeks with some thrills and excitement emanating from the various match venues.
As things stand, Obuasi based AshantiGold SC are the table toppers but they will have to watch their back, judging by the comments of former Hearts, Ghapoha and Aduana Stars attacker.
Dong Bortey who needs no introduction when it comes to the local league believes three-time league winners AshantiGold should be wary of the two most dominant teams Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak.
Bortey believes either of the aforementioned is capable of annexing the title this season following their resurgence in the last few weeks.
Both Hearts and Kotoko have had to overcome a tough start to the campaign and have embarked on a run of form that has seen them climb atop the league standings.
Currently, they lie 5th and 6th and trail the league leaders by 3 points. In the case of Kotoko, they have a game in hand with a win lifting them to be among the table toppers.
Dong Bortey during an interview with Kumasi based Silver FM, believes the resurgence of the two clubs has added some excitement to the season.
“I follow the league and most especially Hearts of Oak and Kotoko. They are the big guns who make the Ghana League exciting,” Bortey told Silver FM
“Both teams were struggling when the league started, but it seems they’ve picked up now. And that has injected some excitement into the league,” he added.
On who clinches the league title, Bortey has made the bold prediction that one of the two giants will be crowned Champions.
“One of Hearts or Kotoko is going to win the league. Anything can happen, but if you observe the current form of both Hearts and Kotoko, it shows clearly that they are on course,” he said.
“Even the current table-toppers know that when these giants are in top form then they are a serious threat to them. So I am predicting that one of these two teams will win the league,” he concluded.
