Elmina Sharks’ coach, Nii Odartey Lamptey’s squad came close to taking all three points in Ghana’s Premier League opener against newly promoted Accra Lions, only to lose concentration and surrender an equaliser at the Accra Sports Stadium.
With Michelle Sarpong scored the first goal of the season for Sharks, they appeared to be on their way to victory, only for the defense to lose concentration, which disappointed the former Ghana international, who is in his second season as Sharks’ coach.
“I am a bit down because of the result. We conceded a late goal because of lack of concentration but it’s part of football. Game after game they will improve and I know that’s for sure ,” Odartey told reporters .
“I took over the team when the situation was bad . I know we won’t struggle like last season and can say that Lions will place between 1st and 8th position in the league,” he ended.
