Accra Hearts of Oak did not sack Coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi but it was rather the Japanes who decided to leave to pursue a certificate, the communication director of the Accra-based club Kwame Opare Addo has said.

The phobian parted ways with the former Aspire Academy coach under a circumstance which seemed unfathomable to majority of the club's supporters.

Speaking to Accra-based Onua fm,  Opare Addo explains the club was not aware of  the coache's plan to go for a coaching course  and rejected the claim Kenichi's exit was premeditated.

"He didn't informed us prior to the signing of his contract that he will go on a coaching course in the mid of the season" he revealed.

"We [Hearts of Oak] did not sack him but he left the club to chase a certificate"

The Japanese left the club after the first round of the league on mutual consent and was replaced by Portuguese Sergio Tranguil .
