Former Hearts of Oak Board Secretary, Ernest Thompson says the decision of the hierarchies of the club to mutually part ways with former trainer Kenichi Yatsuhashi has affected the team’s performance immensely in the ongoing Ghana Premier League.
The relationship between the Sowah-Odotei-led Strategic Committee and the Japanese American trainer turned sour following the latter’s behaviour claimed by the Phobian officials.
According to the Rainbow Club, Kenichi was disrespectful and were unable to settle their differences which eventually led to the departure of the supporters favourite Kenichi Yatushashi.
Ernest Thompson, who doubles as the head of Legal team at the GFA believes that the club is no more stable citing untimely sacking of coaches.
He indicated that he would be surprise if Hearts are able to win the league, noting that he is hoping they get a top 4 finish.
‘’Hearts Of Oak is suffering from instability especially in the coaching department. Changing Kenichi has affected the team very much because they were on course from the onset of the season but all of a sudden the team is going down and I will attribute it to that change,’’he told Happy FM.
‘’I am not expecting Hearts to win the league this season. If they win, fine but I am not expecting them. I would wish they could place an appreciable position, at least in the top 4, so that next season they pick up to win it.’’
Hearts currently lie on the 4th position with 42 points with three matches to spare.
