30 years old Cameroon international midfielder Arnaud Sutchuin Djoum finished on the losing side of the Scottish cup finals this Saturday May 25, 2019 at Hampden Park.
Djoum’s Hearts of Midlothian failed to add to their previous eight trophies as they lost 1-2 to Celtic of Glasgow who claimed a 39th Scottish Cup.
Djoum had the confidence of his manager Craig Levein in the entire game as he partnered Peter Haring and their lone goal scorer Ryan Edwards in midfield from kickoff.
With the league title and League cup already in their bags, Neil Lennon’s men were in search for a historic third consecutive treble in the history of the 50 times Scottish League winners.
After a relatively quiet first half, Hearts’ midfielder Ryan Edwards put them ahead to create panic in the Celtic camp. Winger Sean Clare teed Ryan Edwards to put Hearts ahead after a goal mouth scramble at the 52nd minute. But the experience of captain Scott Brown and his teammates was summoned to good use.
Celtic trailed only for 10 minutes as their record signing Odsonne Edward stepped up his game. Hearts goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal brought him down illegally in the box and 21 years old native of Kourou from the French Guiana made no mistake with the resulting spot kick.
He completed his brace at the 82nd minute by keeping his cool and lifting the ball over the helpless Zlamal.
The painful defeat for hearts capped another sensational season for potential Cameroon international midfielder Jules Olivier Ntcham who came in at the 70th minute of the game for Tom Rogic and Celtic, in a season in which they lost their Manager Brendan Rogers to Leicester City and to many observers they did not play particularly well.
