Meanwhile the Technical team has been mandated to hold an emergency crises meeting on Tuesday on the technical head’s request at the club’s Secretariat.Polo is insisting that he wants to put together his own back room staff of which he does not want to include any of the current members.If the Management of Hearts accepts to implement Polo’s request it means ; Nat Ofosu (Welfare Officer), Dan Tettevi (Goalkeeper’s Coach), Ben Adjei (First Assistant) and Jacob Nettey (Second Assistant) would all be affected and will have to make way for Polo’s new team.“I have told the Management I cant work with these guys. I have had enough of them and the better and earlier they leave the best it will be for me and the progress of the team”. He saidThis request comes as a result of the club’s 2-1 lost to Medeama SC in a midweek action and a goalless game against King on Sunday
