Annor Walker hails hat-trick hero Maxwell Abbey Quaye
Accra Great Olympics registered their first win of the ongoing Ghana Premier League season, after an impressive 3-1 result against Accra Lions.
Forward Maxwell Abbey Quaye had perhaps his most memorable game yet in an Olympics shirt, bagging a sensational hat-trick to seal the points.
Abbey Quaye, who was making his first appearance of the season after missing the opening day draw at RTU due to malaria, started things off with a brilliant curling effort from 25 yards out, before adding a quick double in the second half.
Great Olympics Head Coach, Annor Walker, was full of praise for his forward after the game.
“I’m so happy for him. He is a player I love so much and I’m aware of his qualities.
“He missed last week’s game de to malaria, but after returning today, I think he has proved the point that he is one of the best strikers in the country,” he said.
Olympics will next be in action against Legon Cities, with both teams currently unbeaten in the league.
