Hearts of Oak, one of the biggest teams in the Ghana Premier League, has announced that they have fired assistant coach David Ocloo after just one season.
Following the firing of Samuel Boadu’s technical staff, Ocloo joined the Phobians in October 2022 as an assistant coach to Serbian coach Slavko Matic for the 2022–23 season.
However, the Ghanaian giants have used social media to formally declare that their assistant coach is leaving due to amicable disagreements and wish him luck in his future endeavors.
“Coach David Ocloo and Hearts of Oak have amicably decided to split ways. The club said, “We wish him the best in his future endeavors.
The Phobians avoided relegation on the penultimate day of the season under the guidance of the former Asante Kotoko assistant coach, finishing in 12th place overall.
Following the resignation of the Serbian coach, who was dismissed, Ocloo assumed leadership of the team.
His victory over sworn enemy Kotoko earned the Phobians the 2023 Presidential Cup.
The 39-year-old worked for WAFA, Liberty Professionals, Inter Allies, and Kotoko at various times.
Hearts of Oak is anticipated to reveal a new head coach before the 2023–24 season.
