Olympics Turn To Coach Arday

REPORTS reaching 90 Minutes indicates that the management of Accra Great Olympics have decided to approach former Black Stars coach, Sam Herman Arday to help them solve their coaching problems which they have identified as the bane of the team's poor run in the Premiership. The source hinted this paper that the decision to hire the Technical Director of Gomoa Fetteh Feyenoord was arrived at after a careful consultation with the top hierarchy of the club.

“We believe Coach Arday holds the key to our success that is why we are turning to him and we are hoping he would accept our proposal and take charge of Olympics. Coach Arday has seen it all before and knows how to turn things around that's why we urgently need his services“. The source hinted that even though Coach Arday is yet to officially meet with Great Olympics officials to discuss the issue, he has told very reliable sources that he would not opt out of his contract at Fetteh Feyenoord because he has a personal knack for nurturing young players.

When 90 Minutes reached Coach Arday to check out if he would be interested in the job offer, he stressed that though he is yet to receive any notification from the officials of Great Olympics he would turn down their offer and concentrate on his job at Feyenoord.

“I would not go to Olympics simply because I am not interested in that job. I respect their offer but I am simply not interested because I'm happy at Feyenoord and want to remain here”. He concluded.
