I Left Ifeanyiubah FC Because Of The Club Interference – Kenichi Yatsuhashi



IfeanyiUbah FC coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi as expressed his deep disappointment after parting ways with the Anambra Warriors, as he claims the club interference is too much a burden to bear, which made him cancel his contract with the NPFL side just after one month in charge.

The Japanese international who claims the club wanted to interfere with his player’s selections and make him look bad to the public because he stood firm against the interference.

 Kenichi told

“There are several negative reports out there in Nigeria about me since I joined FC Ifeanyi Ubah and I need to respond to them. When I joined the club there were massive interferences by the management with regards to player selections which brought about disagreements at meetings and I was almost hit by one of the people around who claimed to be a former player of Parma,”

“I still chose to resist some directives like training twice a day because we only had two weeks to prepare and it resulted in different issues. The players would’ve broken down if I had complied.

“Salaries were cut off, promises made to me and the team were never delivered. Also, there were lies through the local media and few of the fans that I’m very bad and rude because I objected their autocratic ways. Chukwuma D. Ubah, chairman of the club verbally asked me to leave after our second match in the 2016 NPFL Super 4 tournament, and I agreed to leave. He thought I would resist and probably beg to stay but that is not me. Honestly, these people are worse than Hearts of Oak.

“According to Chukwuma, my contract had not started yet because it was stipulated that it will begin when the league kicks off and my future will then be decided on the performance of the club. I did not utter anything to him, but even with this, they refused to buy me a ticket back to Japan until I threatened to send them to Fifa for damages,” he added.

He explained further that players were not able to perform well enough in the recent Super 4 tourney because they didn’t have enough days to rest before the tourney began.

“The players were tired during the NPFL Super 4 because they were not given any time off after the last match of the last season, and we did training twice a day during the pre-season for two weeks. This made it difficult for us to win the tournament although it was our target from the start.

He also speaks about the speculation of players complaining about his tactics and poor technicalities.

“It was reported by some media outlets that the players complained that my training style was too physical and my tactics were poor but that wasn’t the issue. Rather, that was what the management wanted the supporters to believe and gave such news to some people. In fact, the key players who were with the club last season told me that they believe they will stand a better chance to win the league and Confederation Cup since fitness is very key. I encountered same at Hearts but after five matches, we were at the top of the log and the same people started praising me.”
