Oly in a better state now – Quaye

Dan QuayeAccra Great Olympics defender, Dan Quaye has revealed that the team is in a far better state than they were some few seasons ago.

According to the player, the club has played under better conditions than what prevailed in the past and if things improve, we could cause a stir in the Premier League.

The veteran defender said this moments after gaining qualification to the elite league after a year in the wilderness.

“I know very well that we have had challenges in the past but we are really good this time around than we were some few seasons ago,” Dan Quaye told Accra based Citi-fm.

“The players are very delighted that it’s all coming out very well for us but that is football.”

“We have a very young team, but we need to add some experience, and we will be very good.”

Olympics on Sunday staged a return to the Premier League after defeating Mighty Jets 2-1 in their penultimate Zone 3 GN Bank Division One League clash played at Teshie.

Having opened a four-point gap following their declaration as winners in the match against Amidaus Professionals by the Disciplinary Committee of the FA, Olympics approached Sunday’s game with high hopes.

But they were stunned by Mighty Jets’ James Asare who fired his side in the lead.

Olympics responded with two goals from Maxwell Quaye to win the game and seal their qualification with a game more to go ahead of former Premier League campaigners, Heart of Lions and Okyeman Planners, which is owned by GFA Vice President, George Afriyie.

They join Elmina Sharks, winners of Zone 2, owned by PPP Presidential candidate, Paa Kwesi Ndoum, for the Ghana Premier League while Zone 1 would soon resume to produce its winner.

Bolga Stars lead Zone 1 with 51 points after 27 matches and Real Tamale United (RTU) are second on 47 points but have a game in hand. Mighty Royals are third on 46 points with 26 matches played.

Mighty Royals play Berekum Arenals on Wednesday September 28 and RTU face Berlin FC in Techiman on the same day.
