Great Olympics are gradually becoming real title contenders for the 2020/21 campaign with the kind of performances they continue to put up week-in and week-out.
The Accra-based side have been touted by the populace as one of the heavy favourites and it is no surprise to anyone who has paid attention to their turnouts in the Ghana Premier League.
With 12 games played thus far, the ‘Dade’ boys currently sharing the top of the league position with Karela United, with goal difference sending Olympics second though the Nzema outfit have a game in hand against Berekum Chelsea on Wednesday.
They have taken 21 points out of a possible 36 available so far and they look increasingly likely to add more should they hold their heads up and produce consistent results.
Despite former coach Annor Walker boasting much of the credits for the impressive run of Olympics, it is Yaw Preko who has taken up the task of proving his critics wrong.
The former Hearts of Oak player was brought in as a replacement for Walker, who is reported to be battling illness for some time now, missing their games against Aduana Stars and Ashantigold prior to the appoint of Preko.
Despite receiving huge criticisms over his appointment, the 46-year-old has proven to be a very good fit for the joint-top league leaders.
After four games in charge at the dugouts, the former assistant coach for Nigerian outfit Ifeanyi Ubah is unbeaten – picking up three wins and a draw including the famous victory over Hearts of Oak.
During that time also, they have scored a total of seven goals while conceding just one. It is also quite important to note their defensive improvements under the former Black Stars player, under whose management they have managed three clean sheets.
For the populace, time will tell if Yaw Preko can lead Great Olympics to their first league triumph since last winning the top-flight in 1974.
