The Chairman for Ghana Coaches Association, Professor Joseph Mintah has opposed the decision to restart the 2019/20 Ghana football activities in the country due to the current state of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ghana’s footballing activities have been suspended since March this year due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.
Professor Mintah believes that Ghana cannot emulate the Europeans in this current situation as their leagues are currently ongoing.
Speaking in an interview on Happy 98.9FM in a discussion on the effects of COVID-19 on Ghanaian clubs, the lecturer of the University of Cape Coast said, “Personally I will say no looking at our current situation”.
“There are some protocols that must be adhered to such as testing and camping players. My concern is that an average Ghanaian player is not disciplined unlike the European and it will be difficult for them to even follow the protocols”, he indicated on whether the season should continue or not.
“It will be better for the GFA to take an early decision on the future of the league so measures can be put in place to restart a new season.”
Discussions are underway whether football should return any moment soon behind closed doors.
Ghana Football Association has been engaging its stakeholders as they decide on the future of the 2019/20 football season on June 30.
