Ghanaian giants Hearts of Oak have appointed Michael Hesse Odamtten as the club’s new assistant coach, according reports in the local press.
The CAF License A holder will now work closely with head coach Edward Odoom who has been steering affairs since taking over from Kim Grant.
Several media reports linked Inter Allies coach Anthony Lokko and former Nzema Kotoko trainer Christian Lokko to the job but the former African champions have opted to name one of their own as the new assist coach.
Odamtten’s promising coaching profile include his role as the Greater Accra Regional Development coach and a coordinator of the Aspire Dream Academy in Qatar, roles which have offered him valuable learning experience.
The Phobians have been re-strategising and drawing a new policy plan and direction for the club with their current project being the construction of the multi-purpose football complex at Pobiman.
Hearts’ hierarchy settled on Odamtten after his youth development and career experience suits the club’s new direction and developing young players.
