Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) boss Kudjoe Fianoo has backed Ghana Football Association (GFA) to offer support to clubs amid coronavirus crisis.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced suspension of all football competitions.

The GFA President Kurt Okraku has appealed to the government to include clubs in the GH¢1 billion Coronavirus Alleviation Programme being rolled out to cushion Ghanaians against the virus.  He stressed the need for local clubs to be factored in the stimulus package.

"We can't demand 1 cedi or 10 million from the government because they are not father Christmas. We understand the government is under threat and we are not saying at all cost they must give us this amount but we want their support to help the players" Kudjoe Fianoo told Asempa FM.

"The players are currently home without any training compared to Europe where players are being taken through online training by their clubs.

"As we seek support for the clubs, we are also concerned about the national team because if CAF of Fifa comes and says qualifiers for youth tournaments which we mainly use local players should start in somewhere in June July our players won't be ready."

TheGhana Premier League and other competitions were forced to take a one-month break following the President’s four-week ban on all social gatherings since March 15.
