Great Olympics captain, Gladson Awako has said he is hoping for a national team call up.

The midfielder has been impressive for Olympics in the ongoing 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season.

Awako played a crucial role in their 3-0 win over Legon Cities at the Accra Sports Stadium over the weekend.

“I want the team to secure a good place in the league and personally I hope to get a call up to any of the national teams,” he said in an interview.

On his outstanding performance of the season, he said, “I have been taking care of myself and now I am more disciplined as a player. When you are growing in the game, you get more experience and also discipline matters too.”

He added that Great Olympics have been consistent also because of the decision to stick with Annor Walker as head coach.

The team had changed three managers in the truncated league season, which according to him destabilises the team when it happens.

“In a team, there should always be consistency and its good Coach Annor Walker stayed because changing of coaches didn’t help us.”

Great Olympics face Asante Kotoko in their next game in the Ghana Premier League at the Accra Sports Stadium.
