Coach Duncan reveals difficulty in joining Hearts

Hearts of Oak coach David Duncan

Coach David Duncan says he probably made the most difficult decision in his career to join Hearts of Oak.

The former AshantiGold trainer last week signed a three year deal to lead the Phobians as the substantive replacement for CK Akunnor who was sacked after a string of poor results.

Duncan made an impressive debut by leading an under par Hearts team to secure a vital point away to Asante Kotoko on Sunday.

He however reveals it was a tough decision to accept the job with the Accra-based side considering the recent problems in the club.

“It was a very difficult decision (to join Hearts),” he told Obuasi-based Time FM.

“It was difficult because the season has started, I didn’t preside over recruitment and there were some challenges in the club.

“The problems with the takeover, the series of resignations and it appeared it was a house that was divided with so many factions so it was a difficult decision.”

Duncan will be in the dugout for his second game in charge of Hearts for the visit of Liberty Professionals on Sunday.
