Great Olympics coach, Annor Walker has expressed his frustrations following his side's defeat to West African Football Academy [WAFA].

The two times Ghana Premier League champions had gone four games without a defeat.

However, Olympics suffered their first defeat of the season against the Academy Boys in the matchday five games at the Red Bull Arena on Saturday.

After an eventful encounter between the two sides, Great Olympics were unlucky to concede a penalty when right-back, Philip Sackey was adjudged to have fouled Marvin Owusu in their goal area.

Centre referee, Bashiru Dauda pointed to the spot on the 95th minute which WAFA striker, Justus Torsutsey expertly converted to halt Great Olympics’ firepower.

Olympics head coach, Annor Walker was short of words after the slim, yet painful defeat.

“Honestly I don’t know what to say because if you look at what has happened here, I don’t see and I don’t know why we should be treated this way by the referees.

“But all the same, we leave it like that, it’s football and I’m really disappointed with the handling of football this afternoon here[in Sogakope],” Walker added.

The week five slip at Sogakope leave Great Olympics on eight points from a possible 15.

  • What next?

Great Olympics will host in-form Bechem United in the matchday six game at the Accra Sports Stadium this weekend.
