Hearts of Oak coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi walked out of his news conference on Sunday after objecting to questions over his club’s intention to win the Ghana Premier League and FA Cup.
Hearts shared the spoils on a goalless draw with Techiman City, becoming the only club to prevent the hosts to score or pick all maximum points at home.
“It was a very difficult game, the opponents played very well and we played well too,” Yatsuhashi told reporters.
“We created a lot of chances but couldn’t score but I think it’s important that we got one point. Today we didn’t score doesn’t mean we won’t score in our next game, and I just want to be patient with our strikers. I believe we’ll score in our next game.
“Of course, yes [Hearts will win the league]. Oh hold on, Wait! I don’t want that question again. I never said before the start of the season that Hearts will win the league so done, finish, thank you,” he walked out.
The coach was asked the reasons behind his action and he insisted: “I’ve been answering this same question since December, even before the start of the campaign, but I never said anywhere that we’ll win the league or FA Cup. It is a mistake on the part of the journalists who report what I’ve never said.”
Hearts are second on the log with 14 points, three points behind Wa All Stars and will lock horns with Samatex next weekend in round 32 of the FA Cup before playing host to Wafa on April 20 at the Accra Sports Stadium in the league.
