Godwin Attram wants Olympics to emulate EPL side Leicester City

Accra Great Olympics coach Godwin Attram says he wants his side to learn from last season’s English Premier League champions Leicester City.

Prior the 2015/16 season, many sports connoisseurs predicted that Leicester City will be relegated but they stood up for the challenge and were able to clinch the English Premiership title last season.

After Great Olympics defeated Tudu Mighty Jets 1-2 on Sunday in the penultimate round of the Division One league at the Military Academy Training Park to book their ticket to the Ghana Premier League (GPL), Godwin Attram, who started the season as a player with the ‘Dade Boys’ but now acting as a coach well believes with the right mentality and preparation they could emulate what the English league champions did last season.

Speaking to Accra based Happy FM, Godwin said, “It’s been my dream to lead this great club back to where they belong. We toiled with our sweat and blood to achieve this feat and I would like to thank management and our supporters for the guidance and prayers throughout the season.

“Olympics are not in the Premier league just to add up to the numbers, but we’ll bee keen on duplicating what Leicester City did in England last season because I believe nothing is lofty when you are determined. However, our goal is to first play and stay in the league.”

“In some of the big games we played this season, I noticed that some of the boys were panicking, and this is one area I’d like to work on before the Premier league season commences.”

Great Olympics top the Zone 3 of the GN Division One League with 63 points from 29 matches, with one game to finish.
