Working with Kenichi Yatsuhashi has not been easy - CEO of Aduana Stars

Chief Executive Officer of Aduana Stars Albert Commey has disclosed that working with coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi has never been easy.

The Japanese tactician was appointed as coach of the Fire Boys just hours after Yusif Abubakar was fired for poor performance last month.

The 49-year-old was tasked to steer the club to the knockout round of the CAF Confederation Cup competition.

However, efforts to meet the demand of the club has proved futile following their elimination from the competition after losing 2-0 at home to Ivorian giants ASEC Mimosas last week.

According to the club's chief, it is difficult to handle the former Hearts of Oak trainer, though he doesn’t regret the decision to hand him the job.

"I wouldn't say we have regretted signing him because every other coach comes with his own problems."

"I have always maintained my preference for black coaches over white coaches because they understand our culture as well as the players

With all he's doing here, it looks to me he's a master in building academies which he has confessed to me that it's his specialty.

“I must admit it has being difficult working with him. Whether he will continue or not we will meet after the match to discuss his future"

"Many are complaining why 14 players made the trip to Morocco but this happened when our two players who were part of the team got injured reducing our numbers to 14 instead of the planned 16 players."
