Japanese trainer Kenichi Yatsuhashi could make a sensational return to Ghana after expressing interest in coaching giants Asante Kotoko.
Kotoko are without a coach after terminating the contract of Croat Zdravko Lugarusic last Sunday after 11 matches in the top-flight. The Porcupine Warriors brutally fired the Croat who has quided them to third with five wins, four draws and two defeats.
Godwin Ablordey has been named interim manager with support coming from former defender Frimpong Manso for the rest of the first round.
”I would like to return to Ghana Premier League and I hope to return very soon. Kotoko are one of the biggest clubs in Ghana and Africa and I’m interested in their job now that they are without a head coach,” Kenichi told Goal.
”It is a big club with lots of history and culture and everyone respect them. My agent is aware of my interest and is working around the clock so I hope to hear good news. That is all I can say now, I have no further comments.”
The former Hearts of Oak coach has never hidden his desire to return to the Ghana Premier League, evident in social media.
Kenichi’s presence in the country improved spectating with Hearts profiting hugely. But the capital-based team bizarrely fired him.
