Ghana's No. 1

Ex-Kotoko Board Kabral Blay-Amihere member believes Ghana is not ready to continue GPL

Published on: 29 June 2020

Former Board member of Asante Kotoko Kabral Blay-Amihere insists the country is not ready to continue the Ghana Premier League. 

According to Mr. Blay-Amihere, the safety protocols put in place to control the spread of the coronavirus has not been taken serious.

He is therefore advising the Ghana Football Association to critical take into consideration all the necessary information needed before making a decision on the future of the 2019/20 season.

“Those countries who have started football are obeying the COVID-19 protocols. If the country (Ghana) wants to start the league, they should learn to implement the proper measures before starting the league," he told Asempa FM.

“There is no seriousness on protocol measures put in place before we start the pending league and I think we are not ready to continue it,” he stressed.

“South Africa is said to continue their league; they have put in all the protocols to ensure the safety of players. They have an element of sponsorship to ease their financial burden but we don’t have such.

“If you say King Faisal should continue the league, it will be a tough demand on their financial status so Ghana’s issue is a very hard task,” the former Envoy and National Media Commission chairman explained.

“Before football revived in Europe, there was a weekly testing of players and officials. Before they started, everyone knew their status but what has the country done so far with regard to this?

“The safety of the players is overlooked which will be a disaster if we continue it,” he added.
