The spokesperson for Accra Hearts of Oak Opare Larbi Addo has lauded management’s decision to appoint an assistant coach ahead of a substantive manager, insisting there is nothing wrong with such decision.
The Rainbow club last Friday confirmed the appointment of Henry Wellington as the assistant coach after the exit of Yaw Preko.
The club has come under a barrage of criticisms following that decision.
Speaking to Starr Sports, Mr. Addo said the decision is in the best interest of the team.
“I don’t think in footballing terms or the rule of football says anything that to get an assistant coach before you get a head coach it is wrong, I am yet to come that.
“It all depends on the policy of the club, the focus and the direction so if you come in whether you are the main coach or the assistant, you all have to fall in line to make sure you work for the success of the team,” Addo noted.
He added: “Everybody knows that before Wellington came in, we didn’t have goalkeepers trainer, assistant coach and we still don’t have a head coach.
“So the most important thing to have done which I believe management has done is that in the search for replacements, anyone that you are able to complete negotiations with must get down to work,” the spokesperson stated.
