Hearts of Oak head coach Kim Grant has poured water on rumors that he would take the Black Stars job.
Speaking to Citi Sports, the Hearts of Oak Trainer was very clear about where his priorities lay.
After an impressive season where Hearts of Oak reached the semifinals of the recently ended Normalization Committee special competition Tier 1 Grant’s stock has risen which has led to speculation he could take over the Black Stars after their underwhelming AFCON campaign.
Grant however has made it clear he has no interest in the job currently.
“My sole priority is hearts of oak. I have been brought in to do a job.”
He added that since he was under contract he would not be considering any approaches unless the club gave him permission
“If there is an offer they have to speak to the club.”
When asked about the Black Stars’ struggles he explained that he could not give as an accurate assessment as he did not have all the details.
“It is hard to comment on the technical aspects when you are not there. We are all observing from afar so we do not know how everything developed”
Hearts of Oak were knocked out of the recently ended Normalization Committee special competition Tier 1 in the semifinal stage by eventual winners and bitter rivals Asante Kotoko.
The Phobians are currently on a 10 year drought without a league title and Grant will be hoping to change their fortunes when the next league season starts.
