Abdul-Salam-Yakubu

New Edubiase United president Abdul Salam Yakubu is arguing for the 2019/20 football season to be nullified.

Like the rest of the world, all football activities in the country have been put on hold due to coronavirus pandemic.

Yakubu, whose side play in the National Division One League, does not see how the season would be completed in time before the start of the next campaign in August.

"The GFA have to give us time to prepare our team when the pandemic is over to play the second round, because you can't tell us to resume immediately (play the following week),'' he told Asempa FM.

"We need at least two weeks to a month to prepare and play the league of which time is not on our side because we want to synchronize with the European calendar.

''Clubs also are not disciplined as regards fielding unqualified players which need to be addressed because it will affect the league.

"The 2019/20 football should be voided for us to go to Congress.''
