The head Coach of Accra Great Olympics, Godwin Attram says he is confident his team will qualify for the top-flight next season after finishing second on the Zone Three league table at the end of the first round of the Division One League.

After being appointed the head coach in April, the 35-year-old has guided Olympics to record seven wins, two draws and three losses during his early stages as a player and coach of the club.

Speaking to the Graphic Sports last Saturday at the Fire Service Park in Accra, the former PSV Eindhoven striker insisted that Olympics really deserved to be back in the Premier League and believed their performances during the first round justified that assertion.

“You have watched us during the first half of the season, and you witnessed our capability. I see no reason why we should not be able to qualify because I think we have all it takes to match-up with any team playing in the top-flight,” he said.

“No team in the Premier League is bigger than Accra Great Olympics, and fans should watch out for us soon”.

Attram further voiced out his intentions of bringing back former team-mate and former Black Stars keeper, Richard Kingson, to help guide the team with his experience.

“At this stage, I think all we need is experience to guide the young players not to be complacent. I am talking to Richard Kingson to join me so we can all achieve our target to see Accra Great Olympics play in the top flight,”

“I am also talking to other players who I believe can help the team reach where it is supposed to reach but would not want to mention names now,” Attram added.
