April 15, 2017
Godwin Attram has revealed that the fracas between him and Great Olympics have been settled after holding a meeting with management.
The Dade boys have been faced with internal wrangling over the past few days between coach-cum-player Godwin Attram and some of the management members of the club following their decision to relegate him to an assistant role in the technical team and appoint Swedish trainer Tom Strand as his head.
Reports went rife in the media that, the team has been divided into two sections as Attram has been leading a part in training at the GNFS ground in Accra whiles Tom Strand also leads the another at the Ghanaman Soccer of Excellence in Prapram as they prepare ahead of their week 12 of the Ghana Premier League clash against Liberty Professionals on Sunday.
However, the former PSV Eindhoven midfielder has disclosed that the matter has been put to bed and they are looking forward to facing the Liberty game as a team.
In an interview with Ohene Bampoe Brenya on ETV's E-Sports Show, the 36-year old said, "A meeting was held this morning to resolve the issue. Lots of people have been calling me, very big people for that matter to tell me that I've got my own future at stake, therefore I should take it into consideration and resolve the issue."
He added, "I don't have any problem with Great Olympics because His Excellency (Amarkai Amarteifio) told me this morning to retrieve my resignation and what I said on the airwaves and I agreed. I respect him a lot and pleaded to him to come out and speak about this brouhaha and whenever he's done I will also come out and announce my decision of retrieving my resignation from the club claim."
"Talking about the game on Sunday, I don't have any option than to wish the team well for the match but I'm pleading with the fans that my players who were at the centre stage of this whole issue will not take part in the game because they need to clear their minds after all that has happened in these past few days and after that we will all come on board and help Great Olympics achieve their goals," Attram deduced.
