Legon Cities coach Goran Barjaktarevic not under pressure despite poor run of results

Legon Cities FC coach Goran Barkjaktarevic says he doesn't feel any pressure despite the poor run of results in the on-going Ghana Premier League.

Cities are currently 15th on the league table after nine round of matches played so far with 10 points, just a place and one point above the relegation zone.

They've won two, drawn four and lost three games in the process.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, coach Barjaktarevic says he doesn't feel any pressure despite sack rumours.

"How many fans do we have?," he quizzed after he was told fans are dissatisfied of their performance. "I mean we are a new club and I'm not sure we have that kind of fan bases who can judge something like that.

"I think those people who are talking are prepared by some kind of people and I as a coach, my expertise is judged by the best people in Germany.

"Those people who think they can judge me as not qualified for this, I have read from social media that I ma coming here to get the possibility to make my A license and this expert that wrote this that I made my A license in 2000, and I made my professional licence in 2005 so I didn't come here to make my A license or make profit. I came to work football," he reacted angrily.

"I mean all these people, I am an open person, all these people can come to me if they have questions and I can guarantee you it's not from our fans.

"Someone prepare them say things like that. I am responsible to my board.

"I don't feel any pressure, I am like a fish in the water. This business for me is like a fish in the water. What pressure."

Legon Cities will welcome Great Olympics to the Accra Sports stadium on Friday on match day 10 of the Ghana Premier League.
