I will gladly jump on and take Hearts of Oak job - Ex-Asante Kotoko coach Abdul

Published on: 16 February 2021

Ex-Asante Kotoko coach Abdul Razak, popularly known as "Golden Boy" has expressed his readiness to coach arch-rivals Hearts of Oak.

The Phobians are without a substantive coach after Serbian gaffer Kosta Papic resigned as head coach of the club on Monday.

Coach Papic took charge of the Phobians in November 2020, and guided them to 10 matches in the Ghanaian Premier League where he won four, drew three and lost three.

He cited personal reasons for his decision and turned down several pleas from board members yesterday to stay. His assistant, Joseph Asare Bediako also resigned from his post last week, as well as, the goalkeepers’ trainer, Ben Owu.

"I am a professional coach and when any opportunities comes including that of Hearts of Oak I will gladly jump on and take the job," Karim Abdul Razak told Nhyira FM in Kumasi.

Abdul Razak won the Ghana Premier League title with Asante Kotoko in 2003 - breaking a six-year dominance from rivals Hearts of Oak.
