Hearts of Oak coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi says he will not risk any unfit player for a league game going into the second half of the season of the Ghana Premier League season.

Kenichi not ready to risk unfit player in the Ghana Premier LeagueThe Accra giants after finishing the first round in 4th broke camp for a week and they returned to training last Monday at the Legon Ajax Park.

Samudeen Ibrahim, Richard Yamoah, Owusu Bempah, Isaac Oduro and Inusah Musah all got injured in the first round but have returned to full scale training with the exception of Oduro who is still at the treatment room.

“They are still in the process of recovering and regaining their match fitness,” Kenichi told the club’s official Facebook page.

“But they are very close. I cannot say they have regained fully their match fitness; of course they have not but we still have about a week or so to go and hopefully they will regain their full match fitness.

“If we are here for fun or playing area football; they can play. But we are here to win so if the players are not regaining match fitness, we will risk ourselves to losing a game and we risk the players to get re-injured so it is extremely important [to wait for the players to fully recover and regain match fitness before they can play].”

The former Premier League champions will host Dreams FC at the Accra Sports Stadium in their first game of the second round on June 26.
