Gt. Olympics Target Top 4 Position

Head Coach of premier league returnees, Accra Great Olympics, Samuel Quaye has insisted that anything short of a top four finish for the club would be considered as failure.

Quaye, who has had stints with Accra Hearts of Oak’s juvenile side Auroras, BA United, Pure Joy FC and Aduana where he got the boot together with his boss, Coach Sarpong masterminded the return of the ‘Wonder Club’ to the Premier league after being relegated in 2010.

The campaign saw them advance from a tough group and again managed wins over Istanbul (2-1), Okwawu United (1-0) and Tema Youth (2-1) to book their place in the 2014-15 campaign.

That journey, according to Sam Quaye, was no fluke but ‘Olympics would continue from where they left off, and that is, winning matches.

“We are training seriously for the upcoming season and like I said the last time, we can’t wait for it to commence. The players are much focused and management is working round the clock to grab a few players to strengthen the squad.”

On the vision of the Club for the coming season, the coach said anything short of a top four finish will be considered as a failure. ‘I think for us it’s too early to talk about winning the league when we don’t know what the season entails. Making such predictions things tends to put pressure on the players and we don’t want to overwhelm them this early.”

“We just qualified for the league after four years in ‘exile’ as I will like to call it. We will take one match at a time and see how it goes, but for now, the general objective will be to play in the 2015 Top 4 competition.”
