Accra Hearts of Oak management have reportedly planned to meet Coach Annor Walker over their vacant coaching role. It’s thought that there is a meeting planned next week between the former Great Olympics boss and the Rainbows.
The Rainbows are currently searching for a permanent coach after Slavko Matic’s departure. David Ocloo took charge as interim manager for the remainder of the season following the Serbian tactician’s exit.
Former Asante Kotoko coach, Prosper Narteh was identified as potential replacement for the Serbian but Annor Walker looks to have become the firm favourite for the permanent managerial position.
Reports indicate the trainer is packing out his belongings from the camp of FC Samartex and is ready to part ways with the club after guiding them to finish tenth in the BetPawa Premier League last season.
The former Great Olympics boss has been approached by the Phobians and the contacts have been positive. There is still no final decision, Hearts will take a few days to finalize talks with him, sources told Ghanasportspage.com.
Annor Walker will be tasked with steadying Hearts of Oak following a torrid season that has seen the dismissal of managers Samuel Boadu and Slavko Matic.
He will be hoping to reshape the squad when given the chance to lead the team.
The CAF License A coach spent two years as head coach of Great Olympics before moving to FC Samartex last season.
The Black Galaxies gaffer served as the assistant coach and head coach of Nania FC from 2005 to 2011, guiding them to the MTN Ghanaian FA Cup win in 2011 after beating Asante Kotoko 1–0 in at the Accra Sports stadium to win the club’s first major top flight trophy.
He also played a key role in Berekum Chelsea’s campaign in the 2012 CAF Champions League when the team qualified to play in the group stages of the competition in their maiden campaign.
