Polo backs Herbert Addo dismissal

Hearts of Oak former coach Mohammed Polo says he sides with the club’s decision to part ways with Hebert Addo, describing it as a good decision.

Hearts reached a mutual agreement with the 64-year-old coach on Tuesday following a run of poor results, with the Phobians now sitting 12th on the league log with nine games left to end the season.

Polo claims his successor was a disappointment.

“It is good he has been sacked because I have been there before,” Polo told Goal.

“I went through other problems as well as players’ problems but I was able to manage the players and the team to a position that was respected by everybody.”

Addo was unable to make progress in the 2015 Caf Confederation Cup and failed to book a final berth in the MTN FA Cup.

Polo, who had an unsuccessful stint with the club last season, earlier called on Addo to resign.

“He had all the opportunities and even his boys had an exposure at the Africa Championship and still he could’t perform. What else do you want? I think he was a disappointment,” Polo said.

The former Inter Allies and Asante Kotoko manager is seen on the local scene as one the most experienced coaches.
