Head coach of Premier League Champions Aduana Stars, Kenichi Yatsuhashi admits Hearts of Oak is the best club he has managed in the country.

The Japanese American trainer spent half a season with the Phobians when he first arrived in the country before moving on to coach Tema based Inter Allies and Aduana Stars.

Currently with the Ogya Boys, Yatsuhashi will be leaving the Dormaa based club after their CAF Confederations Cup campaign.

Following his stint with the three clubs in Ghana, the 49 year old relishes his time with the Accra based club.

“I have coached three Ghanaian clubs now and I can say none of the clubs come near Accra Hearts of Oak,” he told

Kenichi Yatsuhashi's time with the Phobians was engulfed with controversies leading to his departure from the club.

The Japanese trainer was believed to be unhappy with the top hierarchy of the club following delays in the payments of wages and treatment of players.

He left the club to join Nigerian side Ifeanyi Ubah before returning to Ghana to coach Inter Allies in the first half of the current campaign.
