Ghana's No. 1

I am like a fish in water, I don't feel any pressure- Legon Cities coach Goran Barjaktarevic shrug offs pressure tag

Published on: 13 February 2020

Legon Cities FC coach Goran Barkjaktarevic has strongly rejected claims that he is under pressure to perform at the club. 

The Bosnian born German coach has had a difficult start to his career in the Ghana Premier League following inconsistent results from the Royals.

After nine match days, the neveau rich club find themselves in 15th position, just a place above the relegation zone and pressure is mounting on the coach to turn the tides.

However, Goran Barjaktarevic says he feels like a 'fish in water' and feels no pressure at the club but insists there are external factors influencing talks of getting him sacked.

"How many fans do we have?," he quizzed after he was told fans are dissatisfied of their performance. "I mean we are a new club and I'm not sure we have that kind of fan bases who can judge something like that," he added.

"I think those people who are talking are prepared by some kind of people and I as a coach, my expertise is judged by the best people in Germany.

"Those people who think they can judge me as not qualified for this, I have read from social media that I ma coming here to get the possibility to make my A license and this expert that wrote this that I made my A license in 2000, and I made my professional licence in 2005 so I didn't come here to make my A license or make profit. I came to work football," he reacted angrily.

"I mean all these people, I am an open person, all these people can come to me if they have questions and I can guarantee you it's not from our fans.

"Someone prepare them say things like that. I am responsible to my board.

"I don't feel any pressure, I am like a fish in the water. This business for me is like a fish in the water. What pressure."
