2008 Ghana Premier league winner with Asante Kotoko, Eric Bekoe has stated that COVID-19 is a blessing in disguise to Ghana football.
Football in Ghana came to halt on March 15 due to ban on social gathering by the government to curb the spread of COVID-19.
The virus has continued to proliferate and has brought great doom on Ghana football. Forcing the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to cancel the country’s major league and other leagues.
But according to former Kotoko striker, Eric Bekoe, the situation is a blessing rather than a curse to Ghana Football. He explained that the break in football gives the new GFA admiration the opportunity to prepare a good foundation for Ghana football.
“It is a blessing in disguise. It gives the FA enough room and space to prepare. I will be so disappointed if we don’t take advantage of this Covid, because this is something that has come at a time whereby you have a new FA and he needs more time to gel and then do all sort of things”, Bekoe told Enoch Kofi Adadevoh on KFM TV.
“If this has come, he should use this as an opportunity, like a cushion to help him prepare things well.
The former Kotoko striker went on to advice the current GFA Capo, Kurt Okraku to be innovative in case he wants to succeed as GFA boss.
He added that although people in power have limited time to implement their ideas, Kurt Okraku will need time to implement his ideas, hence he shouldn’t be over-pressured.
“Governance is not all about how you made it, but to bring something new on board, whereby people might not miss the one that left. He shouldn’t be over-pressured.
Bekoe is patently one of the most prolific strikers to hit the local scene. He won the golden boot and the best player award in 2008 whiles playing for Asante Kotoko.
