Mercy Tagoe has been named head coach of Hearts of Oak's female team

Hearts of Oak has taken a historic move by naming Mercy Tagoe as the head coach of their female club, Oaks FC.

This crucial appointment demonstrates the club’s commitment to the growth and development of women’s football in Ghana.

Coach Tagoe’s strong track record and dedication to the sport make her a highly awaited leader for Oaks FC as they strive to reach new heights this season.

Notably, Mercy Tagoe previously took over as coach of the Black Queens during the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations, becoming the first female coach to head the national team.

She built her name as a referee before moving into coaching, beginning her career in 1995. Mercy Tagoe made history when she became the first Ghanaian female referee to officiate in the FIFA Women’s World Cup in China in 2007.

Mercy Tagoe’s selection as the head coach of Oaks FC, with her plethora of experience and successes in both coaching and officiating, bodes well for the future of women’s football in Ghana.

Kwasi Appiah maintains Kotoko Sporting Director role despite Otumfuo’s permission to coach Sudan

Despite getting authorization from His Majesty Otumfuor Osei Tutu II to take up a coaching post in Sudan, former Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah will continue in his duties as technical director of Asante Kotoko.

While it was first assumed that the experienced coach had accepted an offer to coach Sudan’s national team, his commitment to Asante Kotoko as technical director forced him to wait until final discussions with the club’s leadership were completed before making any decision.

According to the club’s official website, the former Black Stars captain was granted permission to come to Sudan after meeting with the monarch in London. He has, however, consented to continue supervising the Porcupine Warriors’ technical department.

“The life patron of Asante Kotoko, His Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has blessed our technical director, Kwasi Appiah, to accept the role as Head Coach of the Sudan national team.

“Mr. Appiah will, however, maintain his role as Technical Director of Kotoko,” the club announced.

“He will contest in the Ghana Football Association’s Executive Council elections next month in this capacity.

“The experienced technical expert, who has managed the Black Stars twice during the periods of 2013 to 2014 and 2017 to 2019, is expected to lead the technical direction of Kotoko as we work on restructuring the team.”

“We are building a team that can compete at any level” – Kotoko coach Prosper Narteh Ogum

Prosper Narteh Ogum, the head coach of Asante Kotoko, has asked the club’s fans for patience as he tries to construct a competitive team capable of success on all fronts.

The Porcupines have yet to win a game in the Ghana Premier League this season, having drawn one and lost the other. Their season began with a draw at home before falling to Bibiani Goldstars 2-1 at Duns Park.

Prosper Narteh, speaking at a pre-match press conference ahead of their encounter against Karela United, emphasised the importance of patience while he assembles a new team.

He stated, “If you look at the performance, it’s a process as I have already indicated, we are putting together a new team and if you are building a new team with a whole lot of new players, old players, different identities, different game understanding and intelligence, I mean it will take some time”

“To me, if I look at the two games we’ve played, they did well looking at the way they played. We have to be realistic to ourselves, if you look at certain components of the game within the two games you can tell that they did well. So it’s all about the players getting to know themselves and then knowing how to react to each other with the ball and without the ball”
