Spokesperson of Accra Hearts of Oak, Kwame Opare Addo, has stated emphatically the Accra-based club will not consider the return of former boss Kenichi Yatsuhashi.

On Tuesday 3, June 2018, the Japanese tactician was axed by his club, Inter Allies, for showing gross indiscipline.

Fast forward after the sack of Kenichi Yatsuhashi, stories began to circulate that the Japanese will be heading back to his former club Accra Hearts of Oak.

But Opare Addo who is the PRO of Accra Hearts of Oak said although the club is closely monitoring coaches following the departure of Henry Wellington, the club is not considering hiring the services of Kenichi Yatsuhashi.

'We are still in the search of a suitable replacement, but Hearts has not made any decision on who becomes the next coach. When we settle on one the world would know," he told GNA Sports

'But I can say, Kenichi is not under consideration with regards to the head coach role at the club,'' Opare stated.
