Japanese tactician Kenichi Yatsuhashi says bad organization and personal interest has been the bane to the progress of Ghana football.
The former Hearts of Oak, Inter Allies and Aduana Stars coach emphasized that other nations on the African continent are now above Ghana in football as things are always done haphazardly with people also only focusing on what they will gain.
“I think unfortunately Ghana is not progressing at the same pace as other African countries, and it’s not just one coach that can fix this delayed progress. Poor organisation and a lot of self-interest stand in the way of football moving forward.” Kenichi told footballvsoblivion.
“Hearts and Asante Kotoko compare themselves to Real Madrid and Barcelona in Spain, and it is true within Ghana, and at a continental level. Except, in the most recent decade, they’ve not been able to carry on the success they had in the year 2000 when they won the Champions League in Africa.”
” I think many African countries have progressed a lot, especially North African clubs, they were well organised and played a really modern way of football.” He added.
Kenichi who carved a niche for himself during his stint with Accra Hearts of Oak currently handles Sri Lankan outfit Navy Sea Hawks Sporting Club.
