Former Great Olympics forward, Ahmed Tijani has attributed the club’s failure to win the 2020/21 league title to his exit.
Tijani, a product of Hearts of Oak’s youth team, Auroras, joined the “Dade Boys” in 2018 and instantly established himself as one of the top strikers of the club.
He could however not have a complete season in 2018 with the league abandoned due to the Anas exposé.
The Ghana Football Association’s Normalization Committee Special competition in 2019 provided a platform for him to show the stuff he is made of and he discharged his duties equitably.
The cancellation of the 2019/20 league season due to COVID-19 ensured he missed out on yet another full season.
The 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season was a rough moment when a miscommunication between Olluboi Commodore and coach Annor Walker disrupted his stay at the club.
Tijani will eventually leave after managing just four games all as a substitute due to alleged misunderstanding between him, Managing Director Olluboi Commodore and coach Annor Walker.
The 23-year-old believes his exit cost the club the league title.
“I was at Olympics without playing but the team was winning and I left.
“I left [Great]Olympics when they were second [on the league table ]but here is it.
“After the end when I left, there they finished 6th.” Ahmed Tijani told Africa-foot.com.
Great Olympics were tipped to win the league title due to the depth of their squad and the massive pre-season exercise they had.
They lost steam along the line after making a good start to the season and managed to finish 6th on the league log with 52 points.
