Hearts of Oak coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi has revealed that he is now happy with the club’s supporters ahead of their weekend opener against Edubiase United, claiming they worship the club like people do in their various religions.
The 46-year-old joined the Accra-based club last year after they placed 13th in the last campaign but came under intense criticisms from a section of the supporters following his initial poor pre-season performance.
However, he seems to have made peace with them after the club won their last three friendlies including a 4-1 drubbing of Dreams FC.
“Hearts of Oak is not [just] a club, I see it as a religion,” Yatsuhashi was quoted as saying byGhanafootballnews.
“This is so because people actually worship the club and will do anything to make sure that we get the team on track.”
“I am happy with the fans, players, management, board and every person related to the club. They have been supportive and patient with us [throughout the pre-season]. What is left now is to translate our performance in recent friendly matches into the league on Sunday and take a match after the other,” he added.
Hearts have tasked Yastuhashi to win the league title after they last won it in 2009.
