It is well said in adage that 'he who does a good work deserves to be pushed' the same thing applies to the Ghanaians up and coming youngsters. Awako recently confessed his love for Accra Hearts of Oak, stating that his love story with the Phobians dates back to his childhood days. The 30-year-old says even when he played for other clubs, he still closely monitored Hearts of Oak.
Awako began his career with Berekum Arsenal and joined in 2006 to All Stars F.C. who played his first professional matches in the Ghana Premier League. On 11 March 2008, he was scouted from Heart of Lions and left also after two years All Stars F.C. Although, Awako did not make any hasty decision, but notwithstanding, Awako also revealed the role Laryea Kingston and Stephen Appiah played in his move to Olympics. “When I came in, I stayed in the house for almost a year before joining Great Olympics. The likes of Godwin Attram, Laryea Kingston and Stephen Appiah, I have been training with them a lot and they suggested the idea of joining Olympics after failing to seal a deal abroad.
Awako was on top of his game scoring the match-opener as Gt. Olympics defeated Hearts of Oak 2-0 in the Mantse derby over the weekend. Olympics have been impressive so far and are currently just three points behind leaders Karela United(21 points) which local football pundits are not ruling the Dade boys out in terms of winning the league. However, Gladson Awako believes there is still a long way to go in the season after twelve games.
Though, the Accra Great Olympics team has not decided to stop competing for the league title but they have to focus and work hard as they occupying the top with Karela. Speaking to Kumasi based Wontumi FM, Awako said, “It’s too early to say Olympics will win the league because it’s a long marathon. We’ve played few matches so far”
