Hearts of Oak Close To Appoint Ex-Players To Join Club Coaching Set-Up
Communications Director of Hearts of Oak, Opare Addo has hinted that the club is close to appointing Amankwah Mireku or Lawrence Adjah Tetteh to be part of the coaching set-up of the club.
Reports went rife in the media within the week that newly appointed Technical Director, Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto is unwilling to work together with Edward Nii Odoom.
The reports go further to speculate that, Vaz Pinto would rather prefer working with either of Amankwah Mireku or Adja Tetteh as his assistant.
However, Opare has flatly denied such an appointment will be to serve directly as assistant coach of the first team.
“Pinto has never said, its just people who are putting words in his mouth, Pinto has never said that so nobody should believe that story,” Opare told Silva FM.
According to him, the club met the Old Players Association, where a discussion took place about getting an old player to play the role of a scout/coach for the club’s academy.
“We met AHOPA and told them that because we have U-15, U-17 and U-20 and we will be having scouts all over the various regions, we would prefer them to suggest names of some old players who can perform such roles. It's just that”, Opare Addo concluded.
Hearts of Oak begin the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season against Aduana Stars.
