Hearts of Oak have outdoored Kenichi Yatsuhashi as their new head coach for the 2015/2016 season.
The Japanese-American replaces Herbert Addo who was sacked with seven matches to the end of last term and has signed a two-year deal.
Yatsuhashi has been criticized for lacking the credentials to lead a big club like Hearts of Oak because he has handled any side in a top-flight.
But the former Japan women’s team assistant coach is confident of a successful tenure.
"I am ready for the challenge and I believe that with the cooperation of all the fans, this union will go very far," the 46-year-old at a press conference on Wednesday.
"Hearts is a big club and I was happy that I emerged as the one to take the coaching job and I have accepted the challenge."
