Accra Hearts of Oak head coach Henry Wellington believes young striker Selassie Bakai requires more game time and is prepared to give him the minutes.
The teenager was preferred to Cosmos Dauda in the Phobians XI that drew 1-1 with new boys Techiman XI Wonders in the Brong Ahafo region on Sunday.
Bakai was promoted to the first team from the club’s junior ranks – Auroras and is looking to make his mark with the Phobians.
“I will continue to give Selasie Bakai the chance even if it is 20 or 30 minutes,” says Henry Lamptey after giving youngster his first start in Hearts colours.
Bakai lasted 62 minutes before being replaced by Cosmos Dauda.
