The draw against Kotoko feels like a defeat for us; we should have killed them – Coach Yaw Preko insists

Great Olympics head coach, Yaw Preko has expressed disappointment about the team’s draw with Asante Kotoko over the weekend.

The capital-based club on Sunday conceded a late goal that allowed the Porcupine Warriors to force the matchday 11 clash of the Ghana Premier League to end in a 1-1 draw.

Speaking in a post-match interview, Great Olympics coach Yaw Preko said his team should have killed the Porcupine Warriors.

While bemoaning missed chances, he said he felt his team had been defeated.

“We squandered opportunities. I keep saying that when you play against a team like Kotoko and Hearts of Oak. When you have to kill them you kill them. It happened to us when we played Hearts of Oak. The last set piece of the game, Hearts of Oak equalized. Same thing. We created more than them. I said it against Hearts of Oak. It feels like a defeat,” coach Yaw Preko said.

The Great Olympics gaffer added, “The game plan really worked. We controlled the game. They were not getting any chances. We were hitting them on the counter. When we had to do it medium, we did it medium. When we had to do it low, we did it low. Then we hit them on the counter. But this job is unbelievable because Kotoko doesn’t deserve a point.”

Despite missing out on the win, Great Olympics managed to stop Asante Kotoko from going top of the Ghana Premier League table.
