Arguably the biggest club in Greater Accra and one of the biggest on the African continent, Accra Hearts of Oak are close to appointing Portuguese coach Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto as the club’s new head coach and technical director.
Since the dismissal of Kim Grant in December 2019, the Phobians have since been without a substantive head coach despite Edward Nii Odoom been in charge of the team since then.
Consequently, per reports gathered, Carlos Manuel Pinto will arrive in Ghana this week to conclude all other details of his move before signing his contract with Hearts of Oak.
Edward Odoom will, however, be assistant to the Portuguese for the upcoming Ghana Premier League season.
The 46-year-old has previously handled Clube Recreativo da Caala and Recreativo de Libolo- all clubs based in Angola.
Pinto also coached Ethiopian giants, Saint George SA.
Pinto last handled the FC Famalicão U23 from September 2019 to June 2020 playing 26 matches, winning just 4, losing 11 and drawing 11.
