Head Coach of Accra Great Olympics, Godwin Attram, says he is not as arrogant as a section of the fans and some management members of the club want the public to believe.
According to Godwin Attram, his failure to succumb to pressure from some fans and management members who want to interfere in his job has created friction between those factions.
“I am very competent and loyal to this club. People must support me to be successful rather than attempting to bring me down; this will not help our cause. If Olympics is dear to the hearts of these people, they must be seen to be supporting my decisions on which players are selected to play matches and desist from portraying me as incompetent and arrogant,” Godwin Attram said in his post-match presser on Sunday after losing to Accra Hearts of Oak.
The ‘Dade boys’ have failed to register a win in the ongoing Ghana Premier League and are currently lying bottom of the table.
According to the versatile attacking midfielder, every decision he has taken was in the best interest of the club and believes strongly that it will begin to pay off soon by winning matches.
Attram said, he will continue to stick to his decision so as to help his side to win matches.
The Olympics coach/player dismissed the assertion that he does not take any advice from management members, adding that, ‘when I am advised over an issue bothering on player selection and other matters relating to technicalities, I ensure that the right people digest it from a technical angle before it is accepted or rejected.”
He admitted there is so much pressure on the team to deliver and added that it has affected the psyche of the players but was convinced the team will find its way through the winless storm.
Great Olympics will welcome Inter Allies to the Accra Sports Stadium in a Mid-week game match tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Head coach for Glorious Accra Hearts of Oak, Frank Elliott Nuttall, is confident his side will begin to gel with his tactics and bring positive results to the team.
According to him, most of his players do not play to instruction but believes they will soon live up to expectation.
Reacting to his side’s 2-1 win over Accra Great Olympic on Sunday, Nuttall said most of his players are now getting playing time due to horrible injuries sustained in pre-season.
“Great Olympics is a well composed team that plays good football and always prevents his opponent from possession. We just played according to our tactics and it paid off but I will like to congratulate Olympics because they played so well just that they were not lucky”, he added.
