With football activities having been suspended in Ghana since March due to the ongoing COVID19 outbreak, The Presidential Advisor on Health, Dr Nsiah Asare, has joined the call for the 2019/2020 Ghana football season to be cancelled.
Dr Nsiah Asare who advises the president on the coronavirus pandemic in the country shared his thought on football to Kumasi-based radio station FoxFM, saying “I would have personally wished the football season is truncated, it will be fair to end this season (2019/20) and begin a new season if only the Ghana Football Association (GFA) will agree to it”
The restart of football activities in the country amid the pandemic is in limbo as the government is yet to ease its restriction on the contact sport.
The GFA is engaging its stakeholders on the future of the current season and has announced it will make a decision on July 30.
