Tony Lokko ready to replace Frank Nuttall as Hearts coach



The former Blues boss has announced his readiness to become the next Phobians boss ahead of the 2017-18 season

Berekum Chelsea former manager Tony Lokko has revealed that he is capable of leading Hearts of Oak ahead of the new season.

The Phobians are without a head coach currently, after Frank Elliott Nuttall was suspended indefinitely this week, with reports suggesting that he will be officially sacked on Monday.

And reports in the local media is linking Lokko to the vacant seat amid interest from other suitors.

“I have coached a team in the CAF Champions League. I have worked with Hearts’ assistant coach Henry Wellington before and he is a friend, a colleague and a brother,” Lokko told Zylophon FM.

“I know how Hearts of Oak operate and I have an idea in and out about their system. I am currently available to prove my worth to the club if they call on me to come and provide my services,” he added.

Hearts are without a major trophy since 2009 and have appointed more than ten coaches between then and now, in a bid to end their trophyless run.

Last season, they finished third in the log and lost the FA Cup final to bitter rivals Asante Kotoko in Tamale.
