Published on: 11 January 2018

Former Accra Hearts of Oak Captain Amankwa Mireku has hailed the impact of Scottish trainer Frank Nuttal at the club in his first season.

The former Gor Mahia trainer joined the rainbow club last season and helped the Phobians to a third place finish and to the finals of the MTN FA Cup, where they lost to Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

“The Coach has really done well,” he told Happy FM. “But most of the work is dependent on the players,” he added.

“No matter how good the Coach if the players do not play to his instructions he is bound to fail, so I usually don’t blame Coaches,”

“I know whatever the Coach wants, the instructions he gives out and tactics he lays down, it also has to do with the hard work, dedication and commitment of the players for him to succeed.”

“Because, at the end of the day, the intelligence of the player and the tactically awareness of the Coach is vital in success. But I believe the players output in 90 minutes are important for the club.”

“As a whole I think the Coach has really done well for the club.”

The Scotsman was able to bring the best in some of the fringe players such Kwame Kizitio and Vincent Atinga.

Coach Frank Nuttal will leading the club for the upcoming season and has set the target of winning the competition.

Amankwa Mireku, meanwhile, was part of the Accra Hearts of Oak team that achieved continental successes in the 2000’s.
