The Swedish manager has left his role with the Wonder Club after the club's leadership reappointed Godwin Attram

Great Olympics' ambition to survive the Ghana Premier League relegation scares has been dealt a huge blow after their manager Tom Strand tendered his resignation to the club's leadership on Tuesday.

The 35-year-old walked away from the Wonder Club just five months after replacing Godwin Attram, after a decision by the club's top hierarchy to reinstate the latter.

"I have resigned from Great Olympics and I've told the club's top officials. They don't want me and I think it's time for me to move on," Strand told

"I have sent my letter to them and hopefully we can reach a mutual agreement to terminate my contract.

"They have not paid me coupled with that, they have asked Godwin Attram to be the head coach and that was not what I applied for. It means they don't want me and so I have left them," he added.

Strand, who was nominated for the league's best manager of the month of May and July, has previously managed Ghana FA Cup holders Bechem United as well as Medeama.

With four matches remaining to end the season, Olympics currently sit 15th on a 16-team log with 27 points, six points below safety.
