Accra Hearts of Oak midfielder, Samudeen Ibrahim has rubbished claims he fell out with former coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi.
The 18-year-old endured a frustrating spell on the sidelines due to recurrent injuries under the Japanese trainer.
The absence of the talented midfielder fueled claims he had clashed with the American-trained tactician.
But he says he never clashed with the expatriate.
“It is not true I had issues with him (Kenichi Yatsuhahsi). I was only injured and was not fit to play,” he told Starr FM.
“He did not want to risk me because I was not fully fit, but I never had any issues with him”.
“He had a good relationship with all the players including myself”.
Kenich parted ways with the Phobians on mutual consent after just eight months in charge of the club.
