Ghana Premier League: Hearts players made impossible possible - Kenichi Yatsuhashi

Listen to article

Joyous head coach of Accra Hearts of Oak, Kenichi Yatsuhashi eulogised his players for a comeback of the last two decades in the Ghana Premier League .

The Phobians went two goals down courtesy of Frederick Boateng and Gockel Ahortor with barely half an hour to end proceedings, but rainbow lighten the Tema sports stadium, and thunder followed, striking the 'Eleven Is To One' to second home league defeat in 26 matches

Kenichi Yatsuhashi lacked adjectives to describe how he felt after the win, and gave credit to his team for making the 'impossible possible'.

"We struggled in the first half, things didn't go our way as we planned, and I have to give a lot of credit to our opponents. They are a very strong side and I think they deserve the credit," the Japanese-American trainer told the press after the game.

"We changed some things in the second half and things were still not going our way, but the players made the impossible possible. It is their win, and not my win.

"There are no words to explain (my feelings for this game). We made some little tactical changes, but to very fair, either team could have won the game. I think we were lucky today, but to be lucky, we had to make a lot of effort and our players did that very well," he said.

Hearts of Oak's victory ensured they still have two points advantage at the summit of the Ghana Premier League table after Wa All Stars defeated New Edubiase by a solitary goal.
