Ghana's No. 1

Ashantigold coach Thomas Duah wants 2019/20 GPL season cancelled

Published on: 05 June 2020

Ashantigold coach Thomas Duah insists the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season should be cancelled after two months without football due to COVID-19. 

The season has been suspended following the outbreak of the cornavirus in Ghana, but after almost three months and with the easing of lockdown restrictions by government, there has been calls for the return of football.

However, it is yet to be decided if contact sport including football will return anytime soon.

"I don't see why we should continue with the league looking at the time left for us," Duah told Oyerepa FM.

"You go to Belgium, Holland and France they have all ended their leagues, they are more advanced than us but what did they do," he added.

There are also calls for playing behind close doors, but the Ashantigold gaffer disagrees with the idea.

"Some are suggesting playing behind closed doors that I disagree because we can't do without the supporters, that's not us, it can't work," says Duah.
