Hearts of Oak are reportedly in advanced talks with Swedish coach Tom Strand to fill the void left by the departure of Martin Koopman.
Koopman, tasked with revitalizing the team’s performance at the beginning of the season, parted ways with Hearts of Oak after failing to meet the club’s expectations.
Sources suggest that Hearts of Oak’s management is on the verge of finalizing an agreement with Strand, who previously managed the club’s city rivals, Great Olympics, and enjoyed success at Medeama.
Currently residing in Sweden, Strand is expected to make the move pending the successful conclusion of ongoing negotiations.
The Phobians, currently occupying the sixth position in the league with 16 points, have been without a permanent coach since Koopman’s departure.
Interim coach Abdul Bashiru has assumed responsibilities during this transitional period. Hearts of Oak is preparing to face Aduana Stars at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park in their upcoming fixture.
