Abdoulaye Soulama ready to deal with pressure at Hearts

Goalkeeper Abdoulaye Soulama says he is prepared to deal with the immense pressure that comes with playing for Ghanaian giants Hearts of Oak.

The Burkina Faso international has signed a two-year deal last week to join the Phobians.

Soulama arrives as a free agent having been released by rivals Asante Kotoko.

The 34-year-old says he is ready to deal with the pressure of being a Hearts of Oak player having also managed a similar pressure during his time at Kotoko.


“The pressure is normal because it is a big team in Ghana,” Soulama said.

“It [Hearts] is like Kotoko – also a big club – but I am ok with it.”

Soulama will be in competition with Tetteh Luggard for a starting role spot at Hearts.
