Accra Great Olympics 2020 780x470 1

Head coach of Accra Great Olympics, Yaw Preko, says the euphoria surrounding the build-up to the game between his side and Hearts of Oak is befitting the status of the game.

The Phobians will host the Dade boys in week 11 of the Ghana Premier League at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday, January 30, 2021.

The former Ghana international confirms all his players are fit for the game except right-back, Philip Sackey, who will miss out because of yellow card accumulation.

“I like the euphoria around the game. You know it’s a big game, and that is why people are talking about it,” he told Fox FM Sports.

“We are preparing for the game normally, and all the players are fully fit, only one player is suspended”.

“When it comes to the Accra derby between Hearts of Oak and Great Olympics, each team wants the bragging rights, and I will be glad when we get it.”

Hearts of Oak sit second on the league table with sixteen points and have been on an unbeaten run in their last six matches in the league.

Great Olympics, on the other hand, are seventh on the log with fifteen points and have also been impressive this season.

Coach Ibrahim Tanko Applauds Coach Abdul Karim Zito for Winning U20 AFCON For Ghana

Ghana Black Stars B coach, Coach Ibrahim Tanko greeted fellow countryman Abdul Karim Zito for winning the U20 Africa Nations Cup with the Black Satellites on Saturday.

Zito challenged the chances of winning the tournament after beating Uganda’s favorites 2-0 in the final game.

Skipper Daniel Afriyie’s brace, hitting in every half, was all that Ghana needed to secure the all-important victory for the tournament winners to emerge.

The trophy will be the second for Karim Zito in two months, after leading the same side to win the U20 WAFU Championship in Benin in December.

Following the victory, Tanko took to social media to sing his colleague praises for the indelible achievement.

“This is a massive show of competence and a strong case of self believe,” he said.

“Winning two major trophies in three months is a confirmation of your competence and your knowledge of the game,” Tanko noted.

“As a colleague coach and a brother, I couldn’t have been much happier seeing you lift the flag of Ghana higher on such an important occasion. Congratulations Zito. You have made all of us proud. #OneGhana #U20Champions,” he added.

The trophy becomes Ghana’s 4th U20 AFCON title after previously winning it in 1993, 1999 and 2009.

Tanko was previously the assistant coach for the Black Stars before taking over as head coach of the U23.

He’s also had coaching stints in Cameroon with the Indomitable Lions and was on their bench during the 2014 World Cup staged in Brazil.

Despite the wonderful achievement of Zito and his boys, the opportunity to represent Ghana at the World Cup has been shut after FIFA called off the U20 World Cup due to rapid rise of the COVID-19 cases.
