You have no excuse for poor performance—Polo to Odoom


Former Accra Hearts of Oak player, Mohammed Polo, is of the view that Edward Nii Odoom has no excuses to make for his poor start to the season.

Odoom has been replaced by Serbian tactician, Kosta Papic, as the Phobians head coach on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, after a disappointing start to the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season.

The former Hearts of Oak coach says the former Tema Youth boss has all the time to prepare the team for the season and should blame himself for the demotion to the club’s junior team.

“In modern football, coaches play 60% and the players play the remaining 40%. During our time, we played 70% and the coaches added up the 30% because of the quality of the players,” Polo told Silver FM.

“So, if you are a coach, you’re supposed to add quality to your players. That is how they’ll play for you.

“Whatever you teach them is what they deliver for you. Whatever you teach in training has to reflect in a match form.

“He was a coach who started with the team last year and continued with them [this season].

“You [Odoom] had pre-season training with them [players] before this league started, so what else [did he need to get results]?

“If you’re not performing, you have to blame yourself, you had all the chance and you have no excuse.”

Odoom took charge of the team since January 2019 when Kim Grant was sacked after losing to Berekum Chelsea in match week one.

He played two games this season; one draw to Ashantigold and lost to Inter Allies.
