Accra Hearts of Oak are set to lose their huge Japanese support following the sacking of trainer Kenichi Yatsuhashi, Pinkfmonlinegh.com has gathered.
The Japanese-American trainer parted ways with hearts on Monday evening. An official statement from the Phobians was that the trainer has agreed to part ways with the club over his decision to pursue a month training course outside the country.
But insiders say the management had already decided to sack the Japanese trainer following the arrival of Portuguese ‘New Mourinho’ Sergio Traguil.
And reports from the Japanese community in Ghana suggests that the Phobians will lose the over 300 Japanese followers who supported the club during Keni’s reign.
Hearts matches this season both home and away have seen a large number of Japanese following the club to offer their support.
Their opening league game against New Edubiase United saw close to 200 Japanese trooping to the Accra Sports Stadium to support the club.
The flamboyance of the Japanese trainer and the brilliant start of the Phobians to the season compelled the Japanese community in Ghana to issue a statement in support of the club.
The hundreds of Japanese fans who trooped to the Accra Sports Stadium to watch the Phobians during the first round of the premier league are set to withdraw their support.
Hearts will therefore lose the support of all the Japanese fans who supported the club because of the arrival of Kenichi Yatsuhashi.
