Hearts firmly in support of Coach Odoom

The club’s management has debunked rumours that Coach Edward Nii Odoom is to be replaced for the resumption of the 2019/2020 season which has one game to end the first round.

Accra Hearts of Oak has three games to play before the half way mark of the season is reached. The Phobians will honour a Ghana Premier League (GPL) Matchday 16 encounter away to King Faisal before playing Techiman Eleven Wonders and Legon Cities to close the first round.

A statement by the club read: “Hearts wants to reiterate that Coach Odoom remains our head coach and therefore, we are calling on all Phobians to offer him the necessary support.”

It further went on to say that “the club is aware of some mischievous characters who will always concoct stories to satisfy their selfish ends” all aimed at bringing the name of the club into disrepute.

“Hearts of Oak remains focused and will not be swayed by these false reports,”, the statement concluded.

Coach Odoom took over as head coach following the departure of previous gaffer Kim Grant after the first game of this season, and, has been in charge of the Phobians since, guiding the club to some impressive wins this season.

He recently told Hearts News that the challenge is a tough one he is determined to surpass and, will work at great length towards achieving the goal he has set for himself.

“I want to build a solid team that will compete on all fronts this season and beyond, and, I am happy with the response of the boys towards this ambition”, he said, insisting that the season is still young to draw conclusions.

Having been assured of a strong backing of the club, Coach Odoom will look to press on from where he left off when the season resumes with Hearts unbeaten in the league since Matchday Six.
