5th December 2016

The new Head Coach lays out his vision for Hearts.

Ian Cathro has declared himself delighted at becoming Hearts’ new Head Coach and has revealed what type of team he intends to build at Tynecastle.

The 30-year-old has signed a three-year deal with the club and insists he can’t wait to get to work with his new players.

Speaking exclusively to HeartsTV, the Head Coach said:

“This is a step I’ve wanted to take, one I’ve prepared for and I think the circumstances are perfect. I just want to get to work.

“What will the fans get? A team that wants to win. A team that when the first whistle goes, irrespective of the circumstances, the opponent, home, away, rain, sun, no matter what. When the first whistle goes we will expect to win.

“And we will work to find a way in which we believe that we can win.

“We’re going to want to use the ball, we’re going to want to be incredibly energetic, we’ll want to attack and score goals. We want to be aggressive and be as close to the opponent’s goal as we possibly can.

“We’ll make it an exciting place to come. Will it always be perfect? No it won’t.

“But everybody will be at maximum all the time. It could be an enjoyable ride.”
