Accra Hearts of Oak SC are reported to have appointed former star player, Micheal Hesse-Odamtten, as assistant coach of the club.

According to sources close to the Phobians, the Premier League club settled on Hesse-Odamtten as deputy to Edward Nii Odoom ahead of next season after several deliberations.

Coach Odoom has been without an assistant since his appointment as replacement to Kim Grant in January this year.

Since his appointment, Coach Odoom has engineered a major transformation of the team leading to some impressive performances in the Ghana Premier League (GPL) until the season was cancelled due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

When confirmed, Hesse-Odamtten, who is a loyal Phobian, is expected to come to the table with a wealth of experience including a CAF license A certificate to support the technical prowess of Coach Odoom.

He was a coordinator of Aspire Dream Academy in Qatar, a former player of Africa Sports of Ivory Coast and Dragons of Benin.

As a brave defender who featured for the Black Meteors and later the Black Stars during his heydays in the 1970s and 1980s, Hesse-Odamtten is expected help address the fragile defensive set up of the Rainbow club in the coming season.
