Edward Nii Odoom backed to succeed at Hearts of Oak
Interim coach of Accra Hearts of Oak, Edward Nii Odoom, has received massive support from the management of the club to succeed.
The former Tema Youth trainer took charge of the club after the exit of Kim Grant after losing to Berekum Chelsea on matchday one of the Ghana Premier League.
Odoom also suffered a humiliation by losing to Medeama by 3:0 on matchday two in Tarkwa.
The supporters of the club were hoping to see a new coach at the club but the club has asked the veteran gaffer to turn things around for the club.
“The club is working hard to turn things around. We admit that things are not going as we planned,” the Communications Director of the club, Kwame Opare Addo told Asempa FM.
“The management of the club has given Edward Nii Odoom the time to work. He is not new to the Ghana Premier League. He has done a good job with the junior team of Hearts of Oak and we will give him the support to work.
“We will continue to access him and when he is able to prove himself, then we make him the permanent coach of the club.
“We hope he turns things around for the club but if he fails, the management of the club will make another decision.
“The club has given him the go-ahead to search for his own backroom staff. He can make any recommendation to the club and support why he needs that person,” he added.
