Portuguese tactician, Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto is set to take up the coaching role at capital-based outfit Hearts of Oak ahead of the upcoming season, according to the latest intelligence gathered by Oyerepa FM.

However according to a report filed by Kumasi-based media outlet Oyerepa FM the Rainbow club have opted to go for an expatriate coach, Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto who will be arriving in the country soon to take over the coaching role at Hearts of Oak. The move will inadvertently push Edward Nii Odoom to the assistant coach role ahead of the new season.
