Hearts of Oak have confirmed the appointment of Herbert Addo as their new head coach, the club announced on Thursday.

The former Inter Allies coach has signed a two-year deal to lead the Phobians on his return to the club.

Addo was in-charge of Hearts for two seasons- he won the league in 2002 and but missed out the following season despite ending the campaign unbeaten.

The club’s board of directors has also settled on ex-Ghana international Eddie Ansah as goalkeepers’ trainer.

“The Board of Directors of Accra Hearts of Oak has appointed Herbert Addo and Eddie Ansah as Head Coach and Goalkeepers’ Coach of the Club respectively,” a club statement read.

“They are expected to begin work on Monday.”

The duo will join assistant coach Stephen Abugri and Team Manager Sabahn Quaye to complete their technical set-up.

Hearts of Oak board of directors has explained what caused the delay in naming a substantive coach to replace Mohammed Polo whose six-month contract was not renewed.

“We acknowledge the uneasiness among our supporters when the process of appointing the Head Coach seemed to delay,” the statement added.

“Nonetheless, we believe it has been worth the wait, since the painstaking efforts of the Board have yielded a team of seasoned professionals who are expected to bring to the club’s technical department the energy and efficiency required for the team to compete more creditably for honours in the coming seasons.”
