Winful Cobbinah's depature a blessing in disguise - Hearts coach

Hearts of Oak interim coach Seth Hoffman says the departure of star man Winful Cobbinah has presented others with a unique opportunity to seize the moment.

Cobbinah, 26, has joined Albanian side FK Tirana on a permanent deal.

The exciting midfielder was the poster boy for the side prior to his departure and there are fears his exit will affect the Phobians.

But interim coach Seth Hoffman, who is building a crack team, insists his exit will pave way for others to step up.

"When the chance comes and players move, it probably paves way for others to fit in," he told Kumasi-based Fox FM

"Each and every player is playing well, we all know that Cobbinah is gone and th team wishes him at the best at his new club.

"There rest who are here are working hard to get their chance, so everything is going on smoothly as planned."

The Phobians have been playing series of friendly games due to the suspension of the country's top-tier league.
