Coach Ignatius Osei-Fosu has debunked an unsubstantiated allegations by some supporters of Great Olympics which sort to suggest that the ‘Dade Boys’ played their matchweek 32 game against Eleven Wonders at the Accra Sports Stadium ‘soft’.

After losing 0-1 to Eleven Wonders, some supporters of the home side attributed their defeat to all manner of things, including a belief that the match fixed, but according to coach Osei-Fosu he has a better head-to-head record against Great Olympics so beaten them over the weekend was nothing new to him:

“I don’t know how fixed games are played but if they know, the first point of call is that Olympics has never beaten me before as a coach,” the Eleven Wonders gaffer said.

“The second thing is that, this team [Eleven Wonders] is a team on the ascendancy.

“The reality on the ground is that, check all our away games after we played against AshantiGold SC you could see that we are a team that was developing gradually, but for me it has always been decisions in terms of officiating that has cost us [on the road] so it’s not as we are a team that does not perform well in away games.

“People should get it. We got points against Asante Kotoko, Aduana Stars, and AshantiGold SC so it should tell people the kind of team we [Eleven Wonders] we are, but that’s football.”

According to coach Osei-Fosu he was relaxed despite Eleven Wonders position on the league log, because he believes that coaches are judged by the performance of their teams and not necessarily the results:

“I always say that coaches are judged not on the results of the game, but they are judged by the performance of the team.

“Did we play good football? If yes, then for me, we are good to go, but if your performance is good but the results are not forthcoming, then it’s one thing, but I am happy the results are coming.

“We knew what we had, and we knew we could beat them at any point.”
