Former Ghana international Yaw Preko has opened up on why he accepted to be the head coach of Accra Great Olympics.
According to him, he’s has fallen in love with the project Annor Walker was doing and has expressed his readiness to continue the well-laid project of the club.
Preko was on Tuesday, January 20 named as the new head coach of Great Olympics replacing Annor Walker who has been on the sidelines due to illness.
The absence of Annor Walker from the team’s last two matches has affected the side as they suffered back to back defeats (to Aduana Stars and AshantiGold SC) for the first time this season.
Speaking to the club’s media, Yaw Preko said he is looking forward to the task ahead.
“Annor is my man, he’s been my friend since I was playing. He is one of the legends that we look up to. We’ve been communicating even before he got sick. So when this opportunity came for me to set in and help him out, it was just a simple thing for me to decide.
I thought he is doing something here and I feel like if I can play a little part of it to take it to the next level before he comes in why not.”
Preko will be hoping to begin his Olympics career on a good note as he will playing his first game against Inter Allies this week.
Great Olympics currently lie 7th on the league standings with 11 points.
Preko has had spells in the Ghana Premier League with Hearts of Oak and Inter Allies.
