CAF and GFA medical officer Dr Prince Pamboe has proposed a cancellation of the current Ghana Premier League season due to the Covid – 19 pandemic.
According to him the effects of the pandemic will be felt in the immediate months after it has been suppressed and thus measures must be put in place before the league can be resume.
“The reason why I made that call is because pandemics of this nature which has affected the entire globe don’t vanish overnight.
Even if it vanishes within two or three months there are so many things that need to be done before the league can resume.
Players and league personnel must be tested,while also ensuring that some stakeholders mainly the players are taken through some psychological training.
The League does not have the capacity to carry lout these things that’s why cancelling the season will make sense,” he told Citi Sports in an interview.
The 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season has been suspended indefinitely since March 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
