Tom Strands, Coach of Accra Great Olympics has confirmed his resignation from the team for personal reasons. Tom said he submitted his resignation almost a fortnight ago.
Strands spoke on Boss FM’s Sports show this afternoon and said’ I can confirm that I have tendered in my resignation latter to the management of Olympics and so currently not the Head Coach of the Club’.
Asked why he resigned, Strands said ‘ I was trying to take the team from where they are but the players have disappointed me and so I have to leave’.
The former Coach of Medeama FC confirmed that ‘there is internal politics in the team but that is not the reason why I left’.
He also denied any rift with Godwin Attram as it is reported that the reappointment of Attram to join the Technical team forced him out.
The former U 17 captain has taken over the ruins of Olympics and also assured the management and supporters to do his best for the Accra based Club to swerve the relegation zone.

Return to Medeama
He also confirmed that he is currently at Tarkwah to watch some players of Medeama but sources have it that, he is in talks with the owner of the Tarkwah based club for a possible return to the club.
Strands left Medeama almost two seasons ago but has been asked by the Ethics Committee of the Ghana Football Association to refund an amount of $65,000 to the T and N club.
Close sources to www.ghanamansports.com indicates that Strands has already met Mr. Moses Parker, owner of Medeama and is due to meet for the second time so as to conclude his move back to the team he is owing.
Strands raised a good team for Medeama that competed squarely in the CAF Confederations Cup though they could not win, but left abruptly prompting the management to petition the GFA.
