Ghana Premier League rookies Great Olympics have a new goalkeeper in Stephen Adams.
Adams confirmed securing a one-year contract on Friday ahead of the weekend’s Ghana Premier League action. The former Aduana Stars footballer expressed delight in moving closer to his loved ones.
"I just finished signing the deal. It's just one season because I want to keep myself active," Adams told Zylofon FM.
"I moved to Olympics to get close to my family. I've been away from my family for so long because I was living Dormaa even when I was playing in the league so when the opportunity came to get close to my family I didn't hesitate.
"I joined the league to showcase my talent to Ghanaians once again. I want to show my fans that I'm still in top shape. I should have signed long ago but because we were playing inter-sites gala I put it on hold.
The 35-year-old returns home after a failed short stint down in Zambia at Nkana FC. The 2014 World Cup star additionally explained why he passed on the opportunity to reunite with the Fire Boys.
"I watched their game against Aduana and I was impressed with their play. They have experienced players so I'm praying we'll be able to perform well this season."
"The journey is too far that's why I chose Olympics to get close to my family. Having played for them for so long, it's about time I get close to my family that why I decided against signing for them,” Adams concluded.
