Ghana Premier League giants, Accra Hearts of Oak have unveiled Samuel Boadu as the club’s new head coach.
Boadu comes in on a three and half year deal and replaces Serbian coach Kosta Papic who resigned from the job after just two and a half months in charge.
He becomes the second coach the club has appointed in the 2020/2021 season following the demotion of Edward Nii Odoom at the beginning of the campaign.
Boadu previously coached Ghana Premier League side Medeama Sporting Club but unceremoniously resigned last week after leading the club to victory in a Ghana Premier League game against Techiman Eleven Wonders last weekend.
Speaking at the unveiling ceremony, Board Chairman and Patron of Accra Hearts of Oak, Togbe Afede XIV, said the club is confident Boadu is the right man for the job.
“Our commitment is to work with him for several many years, so we can achieve success together.” He said.
“His ambition is consistent with ours, we think we need someone like him and he has also confirmed his belief in the fact that he needs a club like Accra Hearts of Oak to give him the appropriate platform for realization of his objectives.
“So this I believe is a match made in heaven, a meeting of desires and we expect a mutually beneficiary relationship that will last several years.”
Samuel Boadu on his part said it has been a dream of his to coach the Ghana Premier League giants.
“I had been looking for this opportunity for quite long” He said.
“This is the time for me to be part of the Phobia family. I am proud to call myself the Head Coach of Accra Hearts of Oak.
“I will do my very best and work very hard for Accra Hearts of Oak”
