ACCRA Great Olympics coach, Yaw Acheampong has disclosed that he is not disappointed with the team’s relegation from the top-flight.

The Wonder Club suffered a disappointing exit from the elite division despite producing a late comeback 2-1 win over champions Ashantigold last Sunday.

It has been a frustrating period for supporters of the club who watched in agony as their team crushed out of the top-flight amid constant reports of managerial in-fighting.

Yaw Acheampong, a former Ghana international, was brought in to save the team from going down but he failed to deliver on his mandate after guiding the team into the drop zone.

But he has revealed that he has no regrets over the turn of event.

“I am not disappointed at all. Why should I be disappointed? If you look at our point build up and the teams that survived, you will appreciate that it was not bad at all,” he said.

“I came in to save the situation but unfortunately we couldn’t achieve that. We squandered several goal scoring chances against Ashantigold and as a former player, I can attest to such situations occasionally.

“It’s depressing but I’m not disappointed at all.”

Meanwhile, Great Olympics captain Godwin Attram wants to stay with the club despite their relegation from Ghana’s Premier League.

The Wonder Club suffered a crushing demotion to the country’s second-tier despite producing a comeback 2-1 win over champions Ashantigold on Sunday.

The former Ghana international returned to his boyhood club in a revival bid but failed to lead the team to safety but he has revealed he will stay with the club.

“I will still play for Accra Gt. Olympics should the team be condemned to relegation,” he told Accra-based Hot FM

“I have been with the team whiles in the premier league, so I won’t abandon them should we be demoted to division 1.
