Accra Great Olympics captain, Gladson Awako has revealed the club shares the same sentiments as fans with regards to winning the Premier League. However, players of the club do not intend to mount pressure on themselves.

Olympics have had an incredible season so far and currently sit in third, just two points off the top.

As a result, fans of the Accra-based club are starting to dream of a league title. Awako acknowledges the expectations of fans but admitted to Joy Sports that they aren’t going to put pressure on themselves.

“I hear them say it a lot. Our fans yes they love it. They want to win it, we want to win it too, but at the moment I don’t think we are going to put pressure on us by saying ‘we want to do this we want to do that’ because the points in between is very small, it’s not that big.”

The last time the club found themselves performing at such levels was in 1974, where they eventually went on to lift the league title and the Oly Dade, have found themselves performing at levels they perhaps did not even expect of themselves.

“That was not actually our target. Our target actually was top 4 and top 4 means we either be the league’s leaders, place second, third or fourth. But to our amazement we are seeing that what we targeted seems to have gone up as compared to what we were targeting.” Mr. Osei, communication director of the club confessed to Joy Sports.

However, Awako has resisted making any statements with regards to Olympics repeating that feat of 1974, referring to the merry-go-round nature of the Premier League table this season.

“You see how the league is going, you win today, you are at the top, you lose, you are coming down. So you can’t come out now and say that we want to win the league, so we will take it game after game. When we get there and see we have the chance to, we will do that.”

The club have been in decent form this season, winning 11 out of their 22 matches and posting the 8th best goal scoring record – 24 goals and our twelve games away from revisiting the glory of ’74
