Outgoing Hearts of Oak Head coach- Kenichi Yatsuhashi
Outgoing Head Coach of Accra Hearts of Oak, Kenichi Yatsuhashi who has confirmed that his exit from the club was by mutual consent also disclosed information which seems to suggest that the management of club couldn’t compromise with him as his absence would have meant that he would miss some 5 matches in the second round of the league.

In a statement he posted a while ago on Facebook, the Japanese trainer said,

“The board and the management decided to terminate the contract now, and I signed the letter for termination of the contract by mutual consent.

“…….As you know, start of GPL got delayed to end of February 2016; therefore, end of the season got delayed to end of September 2016. So, I approached the board about 25 days/five matches I will miss. My 1st option was to let my two assistant coaches care take [take care] while I am away. If that is not acceptable by the board and the management, then we must terminate my contract to replace me by someone else.”


BELOW IS THE FULL STATEMENT OF KENICHI YATSUHASHI:

My fantastic time in Ghana with Accra Hearts of Oak in Ghana Premier League has come to the end as today, 20th of June 2016 16:30 at Hearts secretariat where I met with the management. At the time of signing my contract in 1st week of November 2015, I told the managing director at that time that I have a prior commitment in July 2016 that I can't change the date.

At that time, GPL was scheduled to start by December 2015 and we assumed that the league must be over by July 2016 or at lease very close to end of the season. So, he said "We will deal with it when the time comes".

As you know, start of GPL got delayed to end of February 2016; therefore, end of the season got delayed to end of September 2016. So, I approached the board about 25 days/five matches I will miss. My 1st option was to let my two assistant coaches care take [take care] while I am away. If that is not acceptable by the board and the management, then we must terminate my contract to replace me by someone else.

The board and the management decided to terminate the contract now, and I signed the letter for termination of the contract by mutual consent. What my prior commitment is in July 2016 is something I will not discuss publicly. I asked Hearts management not to reveal it and they agreed.

I have had great memories with Accra Hearts of Oak for good time and for difficult time. I thank our supporters for their criticism in the beginning; that made me to push harder to better. I also thank them for unbelievable amount of support after 1st league match; without their support, I would not have accomplished what I had accomplished today. It is bitter that I have to leave now.

I thank our players for making unbelievable efforts they had made and teamwork they have shown. We achieved many successes because of their efforts and teamwork on and off the pitch. I thank my two assistant coaches, Nassam Yakubu and Yaw Preko. We three were perfect, and it was an excellent working relationship we had together. I am sure I will work with them again.

I thank for our staff for coping with my demands. I thank the club for the opportunity. It is bitter that I must leave now in midway to the season. It is disappointing to find myself in this situation, and I don't think we can point any single person for what has happened. For sure, this time was my best time in my coaching career so far. I would like to concentrate on my commitment in July 2016 1st. I would like to think about my future in August 2016. Thank you for everyone, and Keep the Ball Rollin' Coach kenichi
