Frequent changing of coaches at Hearts of Oak affecting players – Ibrahim Larry

Frequent changing of coaches affecting players - Ibrahim Larry

Former Hearts of Oak defender, Ibrahim Larry has expressed concern on the club’s frequent changing of coaches.

This comes after the sacking of coach Martin Koopman due to poor performance.

Koopman has been sacked as Hearts of Oak head coach after ten matches in the league season.

The sacking of the Dutch trainer means in the just two seasons, Hearts of Oak have hired and fired four coaches including David Ocloo who was given the job on the interim in the latter part of last season.

And Ibrahim Larry believes the instability of coaches at a club hinder the performance of players since they need to adapt to different coaching ideas.

“When coaches come and go, it’s a bit sad because sometimes it slows the performance of the club and the team and as a player,” Sumaila told Radio Gold Sports.

“You know every player and how he adapts to a coach so maybe a coach comes in, a player may adapt to a coach’s playing style, and he will be performing very good and excellent.

“But immediately the coach is sacked or gone, the coach that comes in, he doesn’t tune to the coach, so it makes his performance a little bit down.

Even though frequent changing of coaches affect players, Ibrahim Larry acknowledged the responsibility of players to adapt and give their best under any coach.

“So it takes the team down a little bit, but as a player, all you have to do is tune your mind and know what you have to do because it is your work.

“You know what you want so when a new coach comes in, you have to give him your mind and your all then you just adapt to his playing then you are good to go.

Hearts of Oak have currently elevated assistant coach Abdul Bashiru to takeover the club on the interim until a substantive head coach is appointed.
