EXCLUSIVE: Former Kotoko Coach Didi Dramani to take over Hearts job

Published on: 22 November 2016

Former Kotoko coach Mas Ud-Didi Dramani is set to take up the vacant coaching role at Accra Hearts of Oak, Footballghana.com can disclose.

The senior Confederation of African Football (CAF) instructor and assessor of coaches was with the Ghana Black Princesses at the FIFA U-20 Women’s world cup where Ghana failed to make it out of their group.

According to sources close to Footballghana.com, Dramani is expected to arrive from Papua New Guinea and finalize contract talks with the Phobians who have begun preseason without a substantive coach.

The 50-year-old joined Kotoko in August 2012 and has since won three major trophies; Ghana Premier League 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 titles as well as the MTN FA Cup in 2014.

Hearts of Oak since September 2016 did set sights on appointing Dramani as their head coach but due to his involvement with the Black Princesses, the move was delayed.

The club has gone ahead to appoint Dramani’s then assistant coach at Kotoko Henry Wellington to pave the way for his arrival immediately after the FIFA U-20 tournament.
