Accra Hearts of Oak and Director of Football Kim Grant have parted ways. Edward Nii Odoom takes over with immediate effect as the head coach. The club would like to ask for continuous support for Coach Odoom and we wish Coach Grant the very best in his future endeavours.
Following a disappointing 1-0 home loss to Berekum Chelsea in their Ghana Premier League opener, Phobian fans would have at least expected that the side would regroup ahead of their next fixture against Medeama SC.
Not many would have expected that they would be spending the final hours of 2019 pondering on the dismissal of their head coach and the appointment of a new one.
It wasn’t completely unexpected though, as there had been rumblings that Kim Grant was at the end of his rope prior to their game against Chelsea.
The loss did not ease any of the speculation, with stories making rounds on social media; first that Grant had been ordered to step down before the game and then that he had been sacked after the loss.Well whatever the case, he is out of the job now and Hearts fans are far from pleased.
They took to social media to vent their spleen, some criticising the club of chopping and changing too often while not improving the club’s fortunes.
