Our performance degraded because of the frequent changes in coaches, according to Gladson Awako.

Gladson Awako, a midfielder for Hearts of Oak, thinks that their performance last season was impacted by the frequent changes in coaches.
Samuel Boadu was the Phobians’ head coach when the season began, but he was fired midway through the previous campaign.
Slavko Matic, a Serbian coach, took over for Boadu on a two-year contract. The 47-year-old, however, had to resign after a loss to Great Olympics.
Due to a string of unsuccessful matches, Matic was ejected from the training fields by the supporters.

David Ocloo, the team’s assistant coach, was appointed temporary head coach until the end of the current campaign.

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.
