A plethora of Ghanaian players plying their trade in Ethiopia have released a video of themselves pleading with the government to help them return home following the cancellation of the 2019/2020 football season in Ethiopia.
The 2019/2020 football season in Ethiopia was cancelled in May due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
