The statement issued by the club on Monday evening explains that the coach gave the club two options after he expressed a wish to attend a coaching course in India.
“The club wish to assure all supporters and the general public that appropriate plans have been put in place for a replacement and an official announcement would be made in the coming days,” a statement signed by Hackman Aidoo, the club’s Administrative Manager.
Kenichi, per the club, had said he will be away for five games. But the club have decided that it will be "too risky to leave the club without a head coach for the length of time and the number of matches (5) that [the coach] will be away".
Yatsuhashi took charge of the Phobian side from the start of the season and leaves them 3rd on the league log with 26 points from 15 games.
Hearts of Oak say that a replacement will be named in coming days, Yatsuhashi made Hearts formidable on the road, and they are undefeated away – the only side in the league with that stat.
The coach was getting the side ready, since the league went on a three-week break, to resume an onslaught to win the team's first trophy since 2009. He had stated the side's readiness to face Dreams FC this weekend.
