Hearts Poach Sarpong

Defending champions Accra Hearts of Oak are currently in talks with Black Meteors assistant coach, Joseph E.A. Sarpong for a possible take-over of the struggling team.

Albert Commey Aryeetey, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Phobians disclosed this to DAILY GUIDE SPORTS in an interview yesterday.

He explained that the management of the club were feverishly engaged in discussions with Sarpong for immediate appointment as the new year coach for the Phobians.

In the mean time, Coach Sampson Lamptey of Hearts junior side, Auroras has taken charge of the team which went to Swedru to defeat Gamba All Blacks (1-0) during the eighth week Premiership encounter. The only goal of the game came from Michael Asante in the early minutes of the first-half.

Albert Commey further emphasised that he was surprised at the team spirit as well as the level of committement of the boys.

“This is the first away win for the club and if the boys continue to play the way they did against All Blacks the sky will be the limit,” Commey stressed.

He observed that there should be long, medium and short term planning to benefit the players in terms of motivation, and player development among others.

“The introduction of Sports Psychologists into our game will profit all particularly the playing body,” the PRO advised. By Kenneth Yankah
