Public Relations Officer for the Aduana Stars, Evans Oppong has described as premature calls for the Ghana Football Association to cancel the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League season.
Some football clubs and football lovers across the country have recently pressured the GFA to truncate the league due to the increase in Ghana’s COVID-19 cases.
But for Mr Oppong, it is premature for the league to be canceled, however, when the COVID-19 pandemic negatively changes its phase, they will not hesitate to support the GFA to truncate the league.
In his words, “all those people making that comment are looking at their personal interest or personal sentiment and looking at their position on the league table, some clubs see it that the only way they can survive in this year league is by truncating it.”
Speaking on which clubs to represent Ghana in the next season of African Clubs Competition, he explained that the clubs would not have any legal backings to justify their inclusion in the Competition in case the GPL is cancelled.
“It clearly states in the CAF Article 4 Paragraph 6 that should in case a federation league does not take place, the federation has the right to present those clubs that represent the country in the previous years but in this case, they started the league just that they are not able to complete it,” he added.
