A Japanese coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi is in Ghana to finish negotiations with Accra Hearts of Oak and take over the club’s head coaching role.
He is said to have touched down in Accra on Saturday and expected to hold talks with the Phobians whose bid to engage Medeama coach Tom Strand broke down midstream.
The Japanese coach who is believed to be a youth developmental oriented person has worked with ASA College in the United States of America. Kenichi Yatsuhashi landed in the country on Saturday evening and has been having discussions with Hearts of Oak in view of taking the head coach’s appointment.
Hearts of Oak are on the market to get a manager for the premier club whose fortunes for the past six years have been nothing to write home about. They came close to appointing Tom Strand from Medeama but there were no agreements in terms of the buyout clause in Strand’s contract.
The Phobians hope for a better campaign in the coming First Capital Plus Premier League season after finishing 13th last season with 40 points.
