Accra Hearts of Oak have sacked Samuel Boadu as Head Coach of the club with immediate effect.
The 36-year-old leaves the Phobians with his entire backroom staff including Assistant Coach, Hamza Obeng, and Goalkeeper’s coach, Eric Amponsah.
A statement from Hearts reads:
“The club is of the opinion that there is the need for a new direction and the energy to ensure its broader objectives are achieved and it feels the time for that new direction is now”.

The Phobians are winless in their first three games in the 2022/2023 Betpawa Premier League under Boadu.
The Accra giants drew with nemesis Kumasi Asante Kotoko and Accra Great Olympics, after a defeat at Aduana Stars in the season opener.
Although Hearts of Oak ended last season with the MTN FA Cup trophy, the club lost four and drew one in the final five league matches.
Boadu won five trophies in his one-and-half-season at the club including one Ghana Premier League, two FA Cups, a Ghana Super Cup, and President’s Cup.
Youth team Coach, Samuel Nii Noi will take charge of the team until a substantive Head Coach is appointed.
Hearts of Oak will start life without Samuel Boadu with a Week 4 league match against Bibiani Gold Stars at the Accra Sports Stadium.
