Ghanaian tactician, Annor Walker has expressed interest in the Accra Hearts of Oak coaching job following the departure of Samuel.
The coaching role of the Ghana Premier League side became vacant when the young tactician was fired alongside his backroom staff on Tuesday, September 27, 2022, after failing to claim victory in their last three fixtures in the BetPawa Premier League.
The Phobians aim to get a top-class coach, as four different managers (Prosper Narteh Ogum, Bismark Kobby Mensah, Annor Walker, and Dutchman, Erik Van der Meer) reportedly appeared on their list.
Annor Walker, 62, is believed to have been identified as a leading candidate to replace Samuel Boadu.
However, the Black Galaxies who coached Great Olympics in the previous season has revealed his readiness to help the Rainbows should Samartex agree to offload him.
“To be honest, I’m very sad because I was in Accra with Hearts of Oak after the season but they couldn’t approach me for the job. They didn’t show interest in me but now that I have signed a deal with Samartex and they want me to come.
“For about two weeks now, I am not free in the hands of Hearts of Oak if am not telling lies. They are giving me pressure that they want to snatch me from Samartex. Let me ask if your husband or wife is taking good care of you and others want to snatch you will you go? It has affected me, talking about the Hearts of Oak job because I was with them in Accra but they couldn’t approach me now that they are tagging and calling me whiles am in Samartex.
“My current club wants a good coach like me [Annor Walker] to help them unless they want to offload me for Hearts but am not sure of it now. That’s what I have to say.
“There is pressure on me because they are calling me but I’ve told them everything but still they don’t understand. Some of the supporters are also calling.
“I am in Algeria now for the CHAN draw. I will know what to do when I touch down in Ghana but I’ve told them to discuss it with Samartex.
“I want to ask, who will let a good coach like me go? Samartex is also a good team, they have a young team. But everything will be disclosed when I touch down in Accra,” Annor Walker told Ghanasportspage.com
“Asked whether he will be happy joining the Rainbows if only Samartex agree with Hearts, he said, “We know Hearts of Oak is a big club and they are going to compete in Africa. We are all hoping to see them progressing in the tournament. Though I am in a good relationship with Samartex now if they want me to go I can come and help Hearts of Oak. I will be ready to help them but it will depend on Samartex.”
