The Board Chairman of the National Sports Authority Hon. Kwadwo Baah Agyemang says there should be no rush to restart the 2019/20 football season.
He advised the Ghana FA to listen to calls by some football administrators to truncate the current campaign due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
All football activities in the country has been suspended since March 15 following the directives given by the President of the Republic.
Ghana’s Coronavirus case count stands at 6,808 with 2,080 recoveries and a death toll of 32 as at Tuesday, May 26, 2020.
Meanwhile, the Ghana football association is still engaging with all the major stakeholders to decide the way forward and is expected to announce a decision soon.
“We shouldn’t rush in returning football because we have to get things right first before making any decisions,” he told Asempa FM.
“I agree with the school of thought that, the season should be cancelled. We shouldn’t rush if the Western world are returning their football seasons. If it’s easy, the EPL [English Premier League] would have started a long time.
“There other European countries calling off their Football seasons. Even France and Belgium have declared their Champions and Ghana is of no exception.
“We need to ensure that we have the capacity to protect those involved in our game before even play resumes.”he concluded.
