OMP To Take Over Oly?

ompOPTIMUM Media Prime (OMP) is reported to be in negotiations to take over Ghana Premier League returnees Accra Great Olympics, reports

The ‘wonder’ club recently ended their four-year stay in the second-tier league as they gained promotion to the 2014/15 First Capital Plus Premier League after emerging tops from Zone III in a fiercely contested Division One Middle League Play-offs.

Itis however not clear if OMP is seeking an outright acquisition of the club or a majority shares as done in previous deals.

If the Great Olympics deal proves successful, OMP will be hoping to use their platform to market and promote the club which is marking its 50th anniversary this year.

OMP have previously been involved in similar transactions with three clubs; Kade Hotspurs, Zaytuna FC and Sporting Mirren. Ironically, all the teams OMP took charge of, suffered relegation in their debut seasons.

Last year, OMP offered $200,000 to Kumasi-based Premier League side King Faisal but the offer was turned down by the club’s owner Alhaji Karim Gruzah.

*Mahatma Otoo scored a wonderful goal to hand a hard-fought 2-1 win to Sogndal FF over FK Brann in a Western Derby game in Norwegian top-flight on Tuesday evening.

The home side took the lead after just five minutes when Mahatma Otoo slot home an overhead kick before Peter Strand tapped in from close range before the break.

Jakob Orlov reduced deficit three minutes after the break, but Bergeners never managed to enter the settlement.

FK Brann have not won against Sogndal in Fosshaugane for 12 years, and it was clear that Sogndal would improve the statistics further on Tuesday night.

Sogndal FF ran over the visitors in the opening 15 minutes , and as expected it was through a set piece that brought their first goal.

Taijo Teniste threw a long throw into the penalty area of Brann and the rebound eventually went to Mahatma Otoo’s way, whose well-timed overhead kick was on point to register his 5th league goal of the season.

Otoo’s is part of Ghana’s stand-by list for the 2014 World Cup.
