Public Relations Officer of King Faisal Awal Mohammed has called on the Ghana football governing body (GFA) to call off the remainder of the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League campaign due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The coronavirus pandemic has brought a lot of chaos into the football world, causing postponements of tournaments and cancellations of some of the world’s best leagues.
The Ghana FA has been handed a 5 May deadline to decide whether to continue the current campaign or to void it.
With a decision yet to be made on the matter, Awal Mohammed has urged the GFA to bring the season to a premature end. He asserts that the country does not possess sufficient resources to regroup and resume the league.
“In our current situation with Covid–19 you can tell that even European countries that are more advanced are finding it difficult to regroup to train and start their leagues,” he explained on Citi FM.
“Just recently the French Ligue 1 canceled their season.
“In Ghana, we don’t have the facilities to regroup as soon as possible so King Faisal’s stance is that due to these factors if we cancel the league now and plan for next season it will be the best for all involved.”
King Faisal are lying in the relegation zone after picking up just six (6) points from fourteen (14) matches.
