Akunnor signs two-year deal as Hearts coach

CK Akunnor has signed a two-year contract to coach Hearts of Oak

Ex-Ghana captain CK Akunnor signed a two-year deal as new coach of Ghana Premier League side Hearts of Oak on Tuesday.  

The former VfL Wolfsburg skipper replaces Serbian coach Nebojsa Vucicevic who parted ways with the club on mutual consent last Friday.

Akunnor will be assisted by the club’s former defender Eric Adjei.  

This is his second job in the Ghana top flight after being sacked by Eleven Wise in January 2010.

He will travel to Tarkwa to watch Hearts take on SC Medeama in a league match on Wednesday.

Akunnor will be introduced to the playing body on Thursday. 

Hearts are nine points behind leaders Asante Kotoko in second place on the league table.
