Yaw Preko wanted for third Hearts spell?

Few weeks after leading Great Olympics to defeat Hearts of Oak in the Accra derby, coach Yaw Preko could be finding himself at the opposite end.

According to sources, the Phobians have contacted Preko – who is their ex-player to return to the club – for a third spell.

It is claimed that the club is offering him an assistant role under Serbian Kosta Papic, a deal which will run for the next three years should he accept.

The Phobians’ ex-winger returned to his boyhood club prior to the start of the 2015/16 season as an assistant coach to Japanese-American trainer Kenichi Yatsuhashi.

He was made stop-gap head coach with few games to the end of the campaign which Hearts ended at 4th spot.

Preko, however, resigned about some two months to the start of the 2016/17 season.

The former Ghana U-20 coach has since worked for clubs like Inter Allies, Ifeanyi Ubah of Nigeria and until recently Great Olympics.

His spell with Olympics was rather short as he only filled the gap in the absence of substantive coach Annor Walker who had been indisposed. Preko guided them to three wins (including the famous 2-0 victory over Hearts), a draw and a defeat in 5 Ghana Premier League games.

The Hearts of Oak assistant coach position became vacant by the resignation of Joseph Asare Bediako earlier in the week.
