Inter Allies manager Tony Lokko has welcomed the decision by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to cancel the 2019/20 league season due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The GFA announced the decision on Tuesday evening following an Executive Council meeting.

The GFA said all records associated with the season have been expunged with no demotion and promotion.

According to Lokko, he did not expect different news because the coronavirus situation has not improved since the league was suspended in March.

At the time of suspension, Ghana had recorded less than 100 cases however Ghana's cases now stand at over 16,000 with over 100 people dead.

“I think it is welcomed and long overdue. We expected it because when the game went for a break we all saw that the virus was not making it possible for us to resume”

“Looking at the situation at hand, even if we are to resume the preparation towards the game will take a long time so I think it is a good idea from the Ghana FA to cancel the league for now and prepare for a better calendar,” he told S.K Ntim of Bryt FM

“In fact, we are all happy it has come that way though the FA may be losing certain things, technically it is welcoming news for the coaches I believe,” he said.
