Polo backs coach David Duncan to succeed at Hearts

David Duncan is the new in charge at Hearts of Oak

Hearts legend Mohammed Polo has backed newly appointed coach David Duncan to succeed at the club.

The former Ghana Under-17 trainer has signed a three-year deal with the 2000 African champions and tasked with the responsibility of turning around their downward spiral.

The 45-year-old has replaced CK Akunnor who was sacked last month for poor results.

Duncan’s first game in charge will be a difficult away tie at arch-rivals Asante Kotoko on Sunday and Polo has no doubts he can be an instant hit at the club.

“I have known Duncan for many years. I can say he is one of my boys because I coached him at Great Olympics,” Polo told Radio XYZ

“He is a strict disciplinarian and I believe he will step his foot down and take charge of the team.

“He comes into the job with lots of experience and great philosophy and I will just urge him to ensure he does not entertain any sort of interference from any quarters.

“I believe he will succeed at the club.”

The tough-talking coach has previously coached Ashantigold, Hasaacas and South African-based Free State Stars
