Accra Great Olympics were tipped as one of the favorites to win the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League but have nothing to show for with the top flight closed.
The two times Ghana champions started last season’s league with much zeal and verve, producing victories over city rivals, Hearts of Oak and Kotoko in the first round under experienced coach, Annor Walker.
The “Dade Boys” however lost steam along the line, losing games in a questionable manner.
The stagger along the way saw them fall out of the top four at the close of the season much to the disappointment of the club’s following as well as dependable right back, Philip Sackey.
“Collectively as a team, we couldn’t meet our target because everyone knows we started well and were at the top for some time but we couldn’t keep our momentum.
“We dropped down along the line.
“Although we came from the Division One League, we were able to finish in the top half of the table so I don’t know how to put it if it is a success but we can only pat ourselves in the back that we did our best.” Philip Sackey told Africa-foot.com.
Footballers set personal target prior to the start of every season and Philip Sackey is no exception.
The 24-year-old targeted five goals last season but managed to score just once after the entire season. The solitary goal came in their 2-1 win over Dreams FC on the final day.
Sackey opens up on his season’s disappointment in a chat with Africa-foot.com.
“Individually too, I set a personal target which were to get at least to get five goals.
“I couldn’t meet the target, I got one in the last game which was quite unfortunate because I wanted to add up to my tally in the previous seasons.” Philip Sackey told Africa-foot.com.
Great Olympics finished 6th last season where they gathered 52 points from 34 games. They recorded 15 wins, 7 draws and lost 12 matches last term.
