Former captain of Accra Great Olympics, Godwin Attram says the management of Olympics has to be professional enough in their recruitment for the season in other not to suffer a quick return to the second tier league.Speaking on Asempa FM over the weekend, Attram rubbished the recruitment style of the management of his former club; Olympics for acting unprofessionally as he witnessed over 90 players justify their inclusion to join the ‘Dade’ side come next season.“I think for a club like Olympics they don’t need players for justifiers they need to promote young ones from their junior side and moreover I have willingly given out seven of my good players from my Academy to them free of charge”, he said. The 34 year old has now signed a year deal for Deportivo Azogues in the Ecuadorian league but currently is working on his Academy in Ghana and has decided to play for Great Olympics for the three to four months that he will be in Ghana in a mutual agreement with his foreign club. The workaholic midfielder believes he has been the best product for the past 10- 15 years to be discovered by Great Olympics.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Stan Wawrinka won the battle of the 30-year-olds by defeating Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus 6-4, 7-6 (13) to win the Dubai Tennis Championships title Feb. 27.Wawrinka, the second-seed who came to Dubai as a solo act without his coach, had been two points from defeat in the first round to Sergiy Stakhovsky of Ukraine.“It’s an amazing end of week for sure.” Wawrinka said. This is the third time that Wawrinka has played in Dubai. In his previous two visits, the Swiss never won a match.The victory is Wawrinka’s second title of the year. He won a third consecutive Chennai title last month and has won the last nine finals he’s played, including the 2014 Australian Open and 2015 French Open. He last lost a final in 2013.“There is no explanation,” Wawrinka replied when asked why he wins so many finals. “I know that the more I win matches in the same week, the more confidence I get. I know normally when I get some finals that I play my best tennis.”Baghdatis, who was unseeded, has now lost his last seven finals. Nevertheless, the 2006 Australian Open finalist was encouraged by his showing in Dubai, beating fourth-seed Roberto Bautista Agut, fifth-seed Viktor Troicki and sixth-seed Feliciano Lopez.“I didn’t win the tournament this week but I won a lot more, I won my confidence back,” Baghdatis said. “I’m happy I’m back and playing this kind of tennis now.”Wawrinka, who has beaten Baghdatis all six times they’ve played, broke serve on a fifth set point in the 10th game to close out the first set. Baghdatis double-faulted three times in that game, including the final point.There were no break points in the 12 games of the second set.Wawrinka initially led 4-1 in the tiebreaker, and saved four set points to win on his fourth match point on a Bagdhatis backhand error.TweetPinShare0 Shares
