A sudden departure of a coach from a club that needs him the most mostly details the plans of the affected team.
An example was when Medeama Sporting Club lost their coach, Samuel Boadu to a club which they could term a “close ally”, Accra Hearts of Oak.
Samuel Boadu shockingly left the Mauve and Yellow mid-way through the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season for the capital based club.
The 35-year-old, who arrived on a 3-year deal, instantly hit the ground running resulting in the Phobians’ league triumph for their 21st and a first title in 11-years.
The 2020/21 league triumph included a 12 game unbeaten run for the young tactician.
Boadu talked about taking a bold decision to switch camp from Tarkwa to Accra.
“Being a strong man, you have to be mentally tough so moving from Medeama to Hearts of Oak, I think when I was leaving Medeama we were on the second position.
“Hearts of Oak were on the seventh position.
“But you have to always take risks in your life and I know what is in me, I know what I can impart into the boys so that we can deliver.
“So I took a bold decision and since I love the club, the family, I was thinking that when I come, I can perform.” Samuel Boadu Africa-foot.com
Hearts of Oak will represent Ghana in the 2021/22 CAF Champions League which they have won ones in 2000.
The Phobians, who are the 2001 CAF Super Cup and 2004 Confederation Cup winners, are into the quarter finals of Ghana’s MTN FA Cup and would be eying a domestic double this season.
The millennium champions are equally the record holders of the FA Cup with 10-titles to their credit.
