Hearts of Oak: Samuel Boadu deserves coach of the year award, says former Kotoko midfielder Agyemang Badu

A former Asante Kotoko midfielder, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has backed Samuel Boadu to win the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League coach of the season award.

Boadu, who joined the Phobians prior to the start of the second round of the season has been sensational for the club.

Under the guidance of the former Medeama SC gaffer, Hearts of Oak sit on top of the league log with 56 points despite a torrid start of the season.

The 35-year-old tactician has played 14 matches in the league, with 10 wins, two draws and just two losses.

Agyemang Badu, however, in an interview hailed Samuel Boadu and his assistant, Hamza Mohammed and believes the latter deserve the coach of the year accolade.

“I think he deserves the [coach of the year] award even if he couldn’t win the league, together with his assistant Hamza Mohammed,” the U-20 World Cup winner told Takoradi based Skyy Power FM.

He also commended two other coaches for jobs done for their respective clubs.

“Evans Adotey of Karela United and Annor Walker of Great Olympics come next to him,” the former Hellas Verona and Udinese Calcio said.

With four matches to go, Boadu is well on course to end the club’s 11-year trophy drought.

Hearts of Oak will host Asante Kotoko in the matchday 31 games at the Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The game which has been touted as the decider of the season has been scheduled to kick off at 15:00GMT.
