Posted by

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has in recent days been in discussion with Premier league clubs over the future of the league.

According to the public relations officer of the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG), Yussif Chibsah, GFA has proposed finishing the league season by playing games behind close doors, but the clubs are not in favor of that has some want the season completely annulled, others want the campaign continued when it is safe to do so.

“We [PFAG] have had discussions with the captains of the teams on this issue and the players really miss their football,” Chibsah told Ghanaweb.

“The players believe that fans are an integral part of the game so if they are going to play, then the fans must be present.

“So if it is safe for them to play then it should be safe for the fans too. They also want to be tested.

“They also think that the government be the one to declare it safe for football to resume.”

Following a request by the Confederations of African football (CAF), the Ghana football Association has until Tuesday, May 5 to make a decision.

Ghana has so far recorded 2,719 coronavirus cases, 294 recoveries and 18 deaths.
