The Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Premier League side, Inter Allies, Delali Senaye has advised clubs in the top division to take insurance covers against 'unforeseen circumstance' in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Clubs in the Ghana Premier League have been hit hard economically, following the cancellation of the 2019/20 season due to COVID-19.
Some players have not been paid by their clubs due to inactivity, with the future of some teams looking gloomy because of the lack funds.
“I’m very much of the view that, after this crisis, clubs should take steps to take insurance cover against unforeseen circumstances like this,” he told myjoyonline.com.
“Inasmuch as we pray against anything happening again, it is important we take certain steps so that if it does happen again, we can fall on such for protection.
“I think the way to go is to insure against a future occurrence of unforeseen situations like this.
“It will help all of us, and also give us some security."
The pandemic has left scars on many clubs, with Mr. Senaye insists lessons have been from COVID-19.
“Some lessons would be learnt out of this COVID-19. Football clubs would have to prepare and move forward as a unit,” he stated.
