Head coach of Accra-based giants Hearts of Oak, Samuel Boadu has been adjudged the Male Coach of the Year at this year’s Ghana Football Awards.
The soft-spoken tactical genius beat competition from fellow tacticians on his way to gazumping the award.
Boadu, who rose to limelight after joining Medeama SC from Asokwa Deportivo has been deemed as one of the finest coaches on the domestic front and arguably could have swept home this accolade seasons ago had it not been a combination of the infamous Anas expose and thr novel coronavirus.
However he couldn’t be denied this time around most especially considering the tremendous amount of job done at Hearts of Oak, a club he joined midway into the ongoing season – transforming the Phobians into an all-conquering fearful machine dispatching teams with ease.
His taste for the free-flowing, champagne and aesthetically pleasing brand of football has seen him christened Pep Guardiola by numerous followers of the local league.
Boadu’s charges are on the cusp of ending a twelve-long year wait for the Ghana Premier League title and it will only take a mighty miracle to deny the tactician affectionately called Kofi Yesu of gaining his first major title as a coach.
