Hearts of Oak to appoint Portuguese trainer as new head coach ahead of the upcoming season
Ghana Premier League side Accra Hearts of Oak is set to appoint Portuguese trainer Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto as the club’s head coach and technical director.
The Phobians have not had a substantive head coach since the sacking of Kim Grant in December 2019.
Report says the board of directors of the Rainbow club have reached an agreement with the new coach over the club’s available role.
Edward Nii Odoom who has been serving as the caretaker coach since the dismissal of coach Grant will be assisting the Portuguese tactician for the upcoming Ghana Premier League season.
Pinto is expected in Ghana in the coming days to conclude all other details of his move and sign an official contract with the club.
The 46-year-old has previously handled Angolan clubs Clube Recreativo da Caala and Recreativo de Libolo, and Saint George SA of Ethiopia.
Pinto’s last official coaching job was with the FC Famalicão U23 from September 2019 to June 2020 playing 26 matches, winning just 4, losing 11, and drawing 11.
