It will be difficult for Samuel Boadu to succeed at Hearts of Oak - Mohammed Polo

Published on: 03 March 2021

Former Hearts of Oak and 1978 Africa Cup of Nations winner has predicted doom for newly appointed coach Samuel Boadu.

According to him, the former Medeama trainer is not experienced enough to lead the club and as a result, it will be difficult for him to succeed due to the pressure at the club.

Boadu's appointment as Hearts of Oak coach was confirmed on Monday. This comes barely a week after he shockingly resigned from Medeama.

He signed a three and half year deal and will be paid $2,500 a month. It is believed Hearts influenced Boadu's decision to quit Medeama as they offered him GHS 70,000 as an enticement.

The 35-year-old has replaced Serbian Kosta Papic, who quit the club after just three months in charge.

“It will be very difficult for Samuel Boadu to succeed, looking at the target set for him. It is not always about certificate even though it matters, what has he achieved, what experience has he gained”.

Samuel Boadu becomes the 23rd coach to be appointed by the current board of directors led by Togbe Afede since 2011.
