The Samuel Boadu-era at Hearts of Oak begins on Sunday, 7 March 2021, against WAFA at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Boadu was unveiled early this week and held his first training session on Thursday to prepare for his debut.
”We see him as a man of integrity who is looking for an opportunity, one which Hearts is able to provide him. The board is very confident that we have gotten the right person,” the club’s board chairman Togbe Afede XIV said.
”Our desire for him did not arise after the departure of Papic, he has been our long term target, the good news is that Hearts has been his long term target as well.”
He takes over from the club’s U15 coach Samuel Nii Noi who took temporary charge after the resignation Serbian Kosta Papic.
Nii Noi managed two wins and a draw (against arch-rivals Asante Kotoko in the Ghana Premier League derby).
WAFA ended their winless run last week with a 3-1 win over leaders Karela United and that could spark their revival.
Dr Prosper Narteh Ogum is gradually finding balance in his team after injuries and departures hit his squad.
But he will be without Eric Asamany who has still not recovered from a broken leg.
WAFA have just one win on the road and have lost twice already at the Accra Sports Stadium this season against Legon Cities and Great Olympics.
