Former player and coach of Hearts of Oak, Mohammed Polo has opened up on the vacant coaching job of the Accra giants stating that he is the right person for the position due to the wonderful work he did in the past.
The Phobians have been without a substantive coach since the sacking of Herbert Addo during the course of the 2014/15 First Capital Plus Bank Premier League.
Although, Eddie Ansah the goalkeeper’s trainer of the club and Can Vanli took over as interim and attaché coaches, respectively to help Hearts of Oak beat relegation, they are yet to appoint substantive coach.
Hearts of Oak announced last week that 15 coaches both local and abroad have applied for the vacant coaching job, with only Eddie Ansah, the former goalkeeper’s trainer, being the only indigene in list.
However, Polo who guided Hearts of Oak to a third place finish last two seasons [2013/14] after the departure of David Duncan has stated that he is the right man for the Hearts of Oak coaching job.
“If the job I did in the past was satisfactory ,then they should call and hand over the job to me because there’s no way I’m going to submit any document for the vacant position since it will be my fourth stint with them,” Polo told Happy fm.
The man known as the dribbling magician added: “The challenges I faced at the helms of affairs while coaching them was huge but I managed to qualify the team to Africa, and that is my credentials.
“I’ve served the club with all my heart, both as a player and as a coach and I thank Allah that I’ve been able to impact the knowledge he gave me to them and to the nation as a whole.
“If they are ready to acquire my services, I’m always available but won’t apply and will never accept their offer if they run out of options”.
The Phobians had to endure a lot of difficulties in the 2014/15, before they managed to finish the season 3rd on the league log.
