Tom Strand questions Great Olympics fans commitment

Tom Strand has finally shown the pressure mounting him as head coach of Accra Great Olympics by questioning the commitment level of the supporters of the club.

The Blue-and-White’s poor 2016/17 Ghana Premier League campaign continued as they tasted their fifth defeat of the season with a slim 2-1 away loss to Tema Youth.

And the loud Agosuo fans made their frustrations known as they lashed out at the playing body and the Swedish trainer – whose appointment was met with displeasure by section of the fans who had fallen in love with then player-head coach, Godwin Attram.

“I will like to tell those fans who act [abuse] the team in defeat are not the real fans; the fans who support the team in times of difficulty are the real fans,” a disappointed Strand told the media.

The 1974 premier league champions remain in 14th place and will have to revive their season quickly to avoid a return to the division one.
