The technical director of Inter Allies football club Mr. Willie Klutse has lamented over the current state of the footballing activities in the country.
Ghana’s football activities have been halted over two months now due to the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus.
Even though the FA had decided to determine the fate of the season by June ending, their dreams of league resumption were shuttered after the President’s address to the nation on Sunday, May 31. In the address, all sporting activities are still suspended until the ending of July.
Reacting to this on TV3’s 3sports, Mr. Klutse said football is being treated as if it’s not an important sport in the country.
“Football has been treated as if it is not an important sport so football can wait. Man, I think there is more into football than the way people see it.”
“Playing behind closed doors, we are okay because the sports commentators and cameras will be there. Sometimes they play football in Europe and we enjoy it as if it’s being played here.” He said.
Making his case further, he called for easing of restrictions on the contact games by at least allowing the teams to resume training.
“Even if we are not ready to play football, they should allow us to go to training because it takes some time to shape a rotten player.”
“I don’t know who presented footballers case because the club owners are getting fed up to be paying the players. Three years now they are not getting their investment back and three months into this season, they are still paying people for no work and only God knows when this thing is going to end.” He added.
Ghana Football Association has no choice but to cancel the season.
