Former Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu has agreed to terms with Aduana Stars on a two-year contract

Former Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu is close to signing a two-year contract with Aduana Stars, according to Ghanasoccernet.

Following his inability to win the Ghana Premier League title last season, Aduana Stars parted ways with their previous coach, Paa Kwesi Fabin.

According to club sources, Aduana Stars are aggressively seeking to get Boadu’s services to fill the coaching position.

Boadu is poised to quit his current post as a stop-gap coach with Division Two team Kumasi Cornerstone for the opportunity with Aduana Stars.

Boadu rose to prominence during his time at Hearts of Oak, where he achieved exceptional success. He broke the club’s Ghana Premier League trophy drought in 2021, guiding them to their first league title since 2009. He also won a significant triumph in the FA Cup. Boadu’s exit from Hearts of Oak came after he had won four major trophies including the President’s Cup twice.

The probable transfer to Aduana Stars would be a significant step forward in Boadu’s coaching career, and the two-year deal would allow him to further exhibit his abilities and effect as a coach. If the acquisition goes through, it might open up a new chapter for both Boadu and Aduana Stars as they look to collaborate for mutual success in the upcoming season

In an exclusive chat with Citi Sports, Ababio emphasised the importance of winning the remaining matches to preserve their standing in the Ghana Premier League. "Right now, if I had to pick, I would choose to stay in the league for the time being, but all that aside, we prepare match by match. We're striving to earn and keep premier league status; that's our ultimate goal right now."

Alexander Ababio, Chief Executive Officer of Tano Bofoakwa, has emphasised the importance of remaining in the Ghana Premier League, indicating that he prioritises this over winning the MTN FA Cup and competing in the CAF Interclub tournament.

“With Nsoatreman, I aim to overcome them. Since joining the Premiership, we have played two matches, both of which resulted in draws. Though we beat Dreams FC, we will not be satisfied that we were able to remove them.”

This is going to be a local derby, and we’ll be ready to win.”
