Newly hired Hearts of Oak boss Keniche Yatsuhashi says the huge public outcry following his arrival in Ghana can only make him give off his best for the rainbow club.

The 46-year-old Japanese American tactician is reported to have signed a 3 year deal with the 2000 CAF Champions League winners and will be officially introduced to the playing body later in the week.

But his appointment has been ridiculed with many questioning his tactical ability and know how to be able to manage effectively a club with the stature and height of Hearts of Oak.

But in response Keniche says the huge public disapproval is just another reason to work hard.

“Appreciation for all who support me. Even bigger appreciation for all who criticize me.” He wrote on his face book wall

“It is one more reason to work hard. God blesses.”

Hearts ended the 2014/2015 First Capital Plus Premier League on 13th position and will be desperate to improve their form in the coming season.
