The vice president of International Allies FC, Eric Delali Senaye, says his outfit decided to part ways with head coach, Kenichi Yatsuhashi, due to the suspension of all football activities in the country.
Yesterday, the two parties mutually ended their relationship with management, promising to take the necessary steps to recruit another coach for the first team.
“Inter Allies mutually ends relationship with Head Coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi effective today. We appreciate the hard work of Kenichi Yatsuhashi as Head Coach during the first round of the 2017/18 Zylofon Cash Premier League,” a statement on the club’s website read.
“We wish to assure our supporters that, Management shall take all steps necessary to find a suitable Coach for the first team,” the statement concluded.
Commenting on the issue yesterday, Mr Senaye noted that there were no grudges between the club and Coach Kenichi, stating categorically that the decision was based purely on the interruption of football activities in the country.
“There are no football activities and we don’t know when the league will resume so we decided to end the relationship. There are no issues at all. It was a mutual agreement,” he said.
Meanwhile, Kenichi has also confirmed leaving his role at the club.
“I’d like to inform that I have mutually ended my role at Inter Allies FC. I appreciate the club an opportunity and an experience during my stay, and I wish them the best of luck,” he wrote on his Twitter handle yesterday.
This becomes the second time the Japanese trainer has left a Ghanaian club midway through the Premier League after parting with Accra Hearts of Oak during the 2016/2017 league season.
