In a surprising turn of events, Annor Walker has made a remarkable comeback to his former team, Great Olympics, following a season away in Samreboi. The 62-year-old coach had left the Accra-based club to join FC Samartex 1996, a newly promoted team in the Ghana Premier League. However, he has now sealed a two-year deal to rejoin his former outfit, marking his return to the familiar environment.
During his tenure at FC Samartex, Walker guided the team to an admirable 10th place on the 2022/23 Ghana Premier League table. Despite this accomplishment, both parties reached a mutual agreement to part ways, leading to Walker’s departure from Samreboi.
Walker’s return to Great Olympics has ignited excitement among the club’s fans, given his previous success and impact during his time with the team. Known for causing distress to numerous clubs, his presence will undoubtedly be welcomed by the Blue and White faithful.
After successful negotiations held on Monday, July 3, 2023, the veteran coach finalized a two-year contract with Great Olympics. His decision to return to the Accra-based club comes at a critical time when the team faced the threat of relegation in the recently concluded season.
Despite rumors of a potential move to Accra Hearts of Oak SC, one of the prominent clubs in Ghana, Walker opted to swerve the Continental Club Masters and rejoin his former team instead. This decision highlights his deep connection and commitment to Great Olympics, as he aims to steer the team to new heights in the upcoming seasons.
