Ghana: Hearts Sack Team Manager

Accra Hearts of Oak have terminated the appointment of team manager Patrick Madjitey, the club has officially announced.

A statement released on the club's website reads: "the appointment of Team Manager Patrick Madjitey has been terminated. His functions have been transferred to Logistics Officer, Nat Ofosu with the position renamed Welfare Officer."

The former Asante Kotoko team manager's commitment at the capital club came under scrutiny after he was accused by a club official last year.

Meanwhile, Hearts have named former goalkeeper Dan Tettevi as replacement for Abukari Damba who left the last week.

The Phobians parted ways with Damba, a former Ghana international goalkeeper, over reported unhealthy relationship with head coach David Duncan. Tettevi, who spent close to eight seasons with the 2000 African Champions, has been brought in as new trainer.

He was the first choice goalkeeper when Hearts reached the semi-final of the African Cup Winners Cup in 1982. The former Zaytuna FC trainer holds a basic certificate in coaching.
