Accra Hearts of Oak have rubbished media reports claiming the Club’s head coach coaching certificate doesn’t match up to the required licence A certificate.
The FA under the FIFA club licensing rule has instructed all clubs to ensure coaches have the licence A certificate or it’s equivalent else the culprit won’t be allowed to manage in the Ghana premier league.
Hearts’ Japanese-American coach has been reported to have a less qualified certificate to manage in the league but the club has debunked those claims.
Speaking in an interview with Kumasi based, Boss Fm, the Club’s public relations officer, Opare Addo said, “the FA as part of the FIFA club licensing rule have requested from all clubs documents on their officials and not just Hearts alone. Kenichi’s coaching licence hasn’t been queried and that signifies the FA see nothing wrong with it. ”
“The Coaches certificate matches up to the CAF/GFA licensing certificate A which is the required certificate to coach in the Ghana premier league,” he added.
Coach Keni will lead Hearts to mark his debut in the premier league against New Edubiase when the league commences on February 20.
