The President of Ghana Coaches Association, Professor Joseph Mintah says Ghanaian players are not as disciplined as European players and are likely not to adhere to the protocols from the government on coronavirus should football be allowed to restart.
Football around the world has been at a halt since mid March due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
With almost every European league gearing to restart soon, football administrators in Ghana have called on the president of the country to lift the ban on social gathering which was extended to July 31 in order for the country’s leagues to restart.
However, the president of Ghana Coaches Association, Professor Joseph Mintah believes it is not the right call to make, stating that Ghanaian players are not as disciplined as European players, thus they are likely to violate coronavirus protocols…
“The average Ghanaian player is not as disciplined as the European footballer. “I am concerned if we can follow protocols to prevent the spread of the virus in camps should it breakout there”, Prof Joseph Mintah told Happy FM.
With the fate of the league still up in the air, Prof Mintah also called on the FA to make an early decision on the fate of the league.
“The early we take a decision on the future of the league, the better, whether we are truncating it or continuing.”
The country’s leagues has been suspended since March 16, the GFA announced last month that it’ll will make a decision on the future of the leagues latest by June 30.
