Hearts of Oak have moved to deny reports Portuguese trainer Sergio Tranguil will take charge of the club after Kenichi Yatsuhashi’s exit from the club

Reports in the media suggested the Portuguese coach was brought into the country to take over from Kenichi Yatsuhashi even before the Japanese American mutually parted ways with the Phobians.

But strategic committee chairman Vincent Sowah Odotei has quickly dispelled all rumors.

"We must put it on record that Sergio was not employed to take over from Kenichi as it’s been reported in the media,” he told Asempa Sports.

“Kenichi was fully in charge of the first team before we mutually parted ways due to his engagement in July and we felt cannot cope in his absence."

"We at Hearts of Oak think the reason why our standard of play has fallen is because we lacked that quality because of the death of colts’ football.”

"We believe to invest in the game, any player that will graduate from Royal Oaks and Auroras must have the right training hence the appointment of Sergio."

Sergio will be in charge of the Royal Oaks which is the Clubs U-17 team as well as Auroras which is the Club’s U-20 team.

Assistant coach Yaw Preko is likely to take charge of Hearts’ matchday 16 clash at home against Dreams FC.
