The Spokesperson of Hearts Of Oak, Opare Addo has called on the club’s supporters to rally behind Interim coach Yaw Preko.
The former Ghana striker was asked to lead the technical team of the Phobian club after Portuguese trainer Sergio Traguil, who replaced Kenichi Yatsuhashi was demoted to the team’s junior side for poor performance.
The outfit of the Rainbow Club has been unpleasant since the departure of Kenichi.After playing twelve matches in the second round, Sergio has won three, lost two and drawn seven. Hearts have 42 points and are fourth, six points adrift of league leaders Wa All Stars.
Opare believes that the club legend has what it takes to lead the Accra-based club to achieve its objective.
“We as a club we looked at the positive side and decided to appoint Yaw Preko as the head coach of the club when Kenichi left the club but unfortunately he was on national assignment with the U-20 so we decided to bring in Sergio who was at that time coaching the youth team but we have realized that Yaw Preko is now needed at the moment so we have send Sergio back to the youth level,’’ he told Asempa FM.
“We don’t want to lose anything again because mathematically we are not out of the title race so nobody should rule us out. We are trying to do anything to ensure that and I want to call on the supporters to support the club and the decision of the management because we know that Yaw Preko will not disappoint us.”
Yaw Preko will supervise the three games left to be played in the ongoing Ghana Premier League.
