Ocloo led the team to a 47-point campaign and a 12th-place league finish.
Awako believes that their numerous coach changes were a factor, nevertheless. He claims that it takes time for coaches to put their philosophies and styles into practice.
“Too many coaching changes had a bad impact on our success in the previous season. Samuel Boadu came first, then Matic, who didn’t stick around, and then David Ocloo. Our performance was impacted by the fact that all of these coaches had various ideologies that required players to adjust over time, he told Kumasi-based Akoma FM.
We were progressing under Matic, so it was terrible that he departed. David Ocloo gave it his all, but the pressure was too great for it to succeed.
“Coaches take time; you can’t hire them and expect miracles or quick results, so I think the technical adjustments and injuries had an impact on how we played.
“Yes, Slavko Matic’s leaving had a significant impact on us and wasn’t at all helpful. We were in position 12 before Matic took over, but under his leadership, we climbed up to position 3 and are now able to see where we finished the season.
After just one season, the club announced on Wednesday that they had mutually parted ways with David Ocloo.
Laryea Kingston and Hearts of Oak are negotiating for Kingston to become the club’s new head coach.
