I had benn in it already, so, when there is difficulty, I don't have to get out. I have to make sure that the team is salvaged before I can decide what to do next",

" When it is time for me to go I will do that but now there is crisis and I want to help them out. There is nothing that cannot be solved, we don't run away from problems we to try to solve the problems",

" So, I am going back home, I am going to offer all my necessary advice, my experience, hopefully the crisis will be resolved and then we will be waiting for Dolphin to ! come to Accra",

In getting back home, I am going to submit my match report and I hope that we will quickly sit down and solve our problem".
