Hearts of Oak's 'Toyota Engineer' coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi reveals he wanted to be an artist not a coach


Hearts of Oak Japanese trainer, Kenichi Yatsuhashi has revealed that he had no pans of becoming a coach insisting he went to the United States of America because he wanted to be an artist.

Kenichi who was tagged a ‘Toyota Engineer’ by former Chairman of the club Harry Zakour appears to confirm the claims after revealing that he indeed did not aim to be a coach.

Kenichi who has introduced a lot of measures at the club that has seen close to 14 players transferred adds that he entered into coaching by ‘accident’.

‘Most of my coaching education happened in the United States, but I did not go to the U.S. to be a coach,’ Yatsuhashi told americansoccernow.com.

‘I went to the United States to go to college. I wanted to be an artist. I started coaching during my college days in 1992.’

‘The national youth coaching from U.S. Soccer was the most influential course I’ve ever had. I am still using a lot of what I learned in that course—a more player-centered approach—not only for young kids but also for older kids and senior players.’

King Keni as the Phobians call him is currently in Libya with the teams for a two-legged friendly match with Ahli Tripoli.
