The Japanese who has been active on social media since his days with Ghana Premier League club Accra Hearts of Oak took to his Facebook and Twitter pages to explain what happened.

Kenichi wrote on his Facebook page:

“1st, I apologize for my late announcement. I needed to leave the country 1st safely. Below is my full statement:

“It came to the point where I feel my next destination is not in Africa, except South Africa and countries in northern part of Africa.

“I have had outstanding relationship with the players I worked with in Africa; they are also outstanding players. Nevertheless, I can't change the environment; I can only work with the players. In order to work with the players, there must be a right environment.

“At this moment, I have a different priority in my career, and I will fulfill this priority in other continents.

“Africa gave me valuable experiences that is impossible for me to gain elsewhere.

“Also, I wish the best for players I have worked with.

“I also wish the best for Hearts supporters. One day, I will return.

“I will announce my next destination very shortly. I appreciate your continuing support.”
