Hearts of Oak picks coach David Duncan

David Duncan has taken full charge of Accra Hearts of Oak ahead of the Phobians crunch Premiership top-liner with Asante Kotoko billed for the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday, November 18.

Duncan, according to a credible source GNA Sports spoke with is expected to walk the players through preparation for the next few days though his contract is yet to be finalized.

Hearts and the former Great Olympics trainer, according to the source though have dotted and signed their respective portions of the contract; the tough talking trainer has yet to receive his GH¢20,000 signing-on fee to enable him to commence work officially.

The Kumasi game is expected to be his first in charge of the team barring any last minute development.

Duncan has penned a two-year contract with the Phobians worth GH¢4,000 monthly and is said to have learnt a first hand information about his charges having featured as an observer at the team’s training ground late Monday.

The contract according to information gathered by GNA Sports was devoid of a performance clause.

“The contract is a very comprehensive one with an open target. Both parties are committed to restoring pride to the team,” said the source.

Duncan becomes Hearts’ second trainer this season following the exit of Charles K. Akunnor a fortnight ago. The latter was shown the door with a year to run on his contract following a string of poor results.

He is credited with decent works at Great Olympics, Sekondi Hasaacas and AshantiGold, teams he turned into a force during his stay.

His last job was in charge of the national Olympic team in 2011 where the team failed to qualify for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
