Samudeen: Kenichi didn’t want to risk me

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.
