Midfielder Michelle Sarpong has acknowledged former Hearts of Oak trainer Kim Grant for the role he has played in his development.
Sarpong, last year was promoted from the club’s youth team, Auroras after an impressive performance to the senior side by then-coach Kim Grant.
He was handed his debut the in the GFA Normalisation Special Competition as he was instrumental as Hearts of Oak reached the semi-final of the competition
In an emotional message to his former trainer, Sarpong wrote, “You saw something in me that no coach has ever seen and you were the only coach to give me a chance to prove my self despite being in the youth team for 5 good years and had no chance to give a trial training at the senior side.
“You had faith in me and you gave me the chance when no coach did. You thought me so much and I will ever remain grateful.
Kim Grant who was appointed the head coach and director of football for Hearts of Oak on a three-year in December 2018 had his contract terminated last week after losing the opening match of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League against Berekum Chelsea by a lone goal at the Accra Sports Stadium.
