Accra Hearts of Oak have mutually parted ways with Martin Koopman as the head coach of the club.
The club confirmed the news via their Twitter and Facebook page on Tuesday afternoon.
As stated, the decision to end their relationship with the Deutsch tactician forms part of the club’s grand aim of restructuring the technical team as we continue with the 2023-24 football season.
Koopman departs Hearts of Oak with a record of only two wins in the Ghana Premier League, accumulating 12 points out of a possible 30.
The team’s performance has been subpar, showing no signs of improvement.
In a statement released by the club, it was revealed that the decision to let go of Koopman is part of their plan to restructure the technical team moving forward in the 2023-24 football season. Assistant coach Abdul Rahim Bashiru has been appointed as the acting head coach until further notice.
The management of the club expressed gratitude towards Koopman for his contributions during his time at Hearts of Oak and wished him well in his future endeavours.
Koopman’s dismissal comes after a 0-0 draw with Legon Cities on Sunday, where he defiantly stated that he wasn’t concerned about being sacked.
Previously, he had attributed the club’s poor start to the season to the absence of a quality striker, criticising the management for not providing him with sufficient resources.
