Hearts supporters are still waiting to find out who will be their manager next season. According to today’s Edinburgh Evening News, Artmedia Bratislava boss Vladimir Weiss was expected to give an answer on Monday and has failed to contact the club before the deadline set for 5pm last night.
Weiss, who has recently won the league and cup double with his current side, seems to be the favourite amongst the Hearts support, out of the three names apparently on the shortlist. The other two are Gudjon Thordarson and Andrei Zygmantovich. It has also been reported that Weiss is wanted by the Slovakian FA to be the next manager of the national team.
The Hearts player will report for pre-season training in under a week and Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov is no nearer to appointing a manager than he was when the team left for their summer break.
While most Hearts fans may settle for Throdarson, who has promised to appoint Terry Butcher as his assistant, they would not be at all happy with Zygmantovich. Zygmantovich currently works as a coach at Kaunas, one of Romanov’s other teams, and doesn’t even have the required badges to become a permanent manager in the SPL.
