Beleaguered Hearts of Oak are reported to have appointed former hero Laryea Kingston as interim coach ahead of Sunday’s Ghana Premier League Week 15 clash against Ebusua Dwarfs.

Hearts of Oak are without a substantive coach following the acrimonious departure of Serbian trainer Kosta Papic earlier this week.

Samuel Nii Noi, who is the U-15 coach of the side’s youth setup, was quickly announced as a stop-gap coach.

Reports swirling in the media suggest that the Phobians have instead handed the interim job to former Ghana international Laryea Kingston.

Should the reports be true, the club’s former cult hero is expected to be in the dug out for their Matchday 15 encounter against in-form Ebusua Dwarfs on Sunday.

Hearts of Oak have endured a turbulent week after four key members of the coaching team left the club.

In the aftermath of deputy coach Asare Bediako’s departure, head coach Kosta Papic also followed two days later.

Goalkeepers’ trainer Ben Owu shockingly exited the club before reports went rife that long-serving Team Manager Silvester Sabahn Quaye has also severed ties with the club.

Kingston enjoyed two trophy-laden spells with the one-time continental champions.
