The cancellation of the Special Competition by the Normalisation Committee has caused some great discomfort for players in the country as they had hoped to return to the field should the Special Competition allowed to go on.

The Normalisation Committee had cancelled the Special Competition because they were unable to come into agreement with the Premier League clubs concerning the budgetary allocation for the tournament.

The Normalisation Committee had received $1.2 million from the government to revive local football in the country.

Medeama SC captain, Joseph Tetteh-Zutah,  has revealed that lack of active football in the country is greatly affecting the players as they had hoped to had return with the commencement of  the Special Competition.

“Lack of active football is affecting us greatly because we can’t keep our fit and form, we have family members that we take care of. Financially and physically we are suffering greatly Because there is no football activities in Ghana, he told Happy FM.

He added that they had been preparing for the Normalisation Committee Special Competition but were disappointed to have heard the tournament was cancelled.

“We were preparing for the special competition until the news came that the competition has been cancelled, but we are still in camp and training as players awaiting the final decision" .
