Interim head coach of Accra Hearts of Oak, Edward Nii Odoom, has rebuffed claims that he is not capable of handling the team on a permanent basis.
Odoom’s second match in the job ended up a 3-0 loss at Medeama on Sunday in Week 2 of the Ghana Premier League.
The Phobians fell to goals from Prince Opoku Agyemang and Nana Kofi Babil to leave them bottom of the league table after two matches. They lost 1-0 to Berekum Chelsea in Week 1 of the league.
After the loss in Tarkwa, Odoom’s capabilities as a coach came under scrutiny and he was resolute in his defense of his work at Hearts of Oak in the first two rounds of the season.
”I have coached in Ghana for 30 years. I have handled different teams like Real Sportive and many others.
This Hearts of Oak job is not beyond me at all. I am capable of doing the work well.”
Odoom was named interim head coach after the departure of Kim Grant from the club before the start of the season.
His next assignment will be against Dwarfs at the Accra Sports Stadium in Week 3 of the league.
