The letter reads: “Please allow me to congratulate Hearts of Oak for having been crowned 2020/21 champions of Ghana!
This title is, no doubt, the result of hard work, passion, and commitment, and everyone at the club can be proud of this important achievement.
I would be grateful if you could please extend my congratulations to everybody involved, whom I encourage to continue working with team spirit, passion, and determination.
On behalf of the international football community, I finally take this opportunity to thank you and your Association for your contribution to the development and the prosperity of football in Ghana, in your region and around the world.
I look forward to seeing you again soon.”
