We are determined to avoid relegation – Tom Strand

Accra Great Olympic Coach Tom Strand has said his team is determined to reverse its recent sinking fortunes after losing 0-1 to Aduana Stars in Dormaa on Wednesday.

He said the team has resolved to avoid relegation, which is hanging around their neck after suffering back to back defeats to Tema Youth, Liberty Professionals and Aduana Stars and currently lying 15 in the 16 team league with 21 points.

“Our chances of survival are still very bleak. I think we deserved more than a loss in those games; maybe a draw would have been better. We need to find space and luck somewhere because right now we are sinking”, he said.

He also made some contradictory remarks over the performance of his team during a post-match interview with the press, saying at one point that “frustration’, frustration’, ‘frustration” but I’m happy with the performance of the team because it’s not easy to get anything for free here”.

Coach Strand said he was very disappointed with officiating and the fact that they had played three matches without a win.
