Ghana's No. 1

Paa Kwesi Fabin - Resumption of football requires divine intervention

Published on: 25 May 2020

Aduana Stars head coach Paa Kwesi Fabin believes it will take God's intervention before football activities resume in the country.

Football activities have been halted in Ghana since 15 March 2020 as the government placed a ban on all social gatherings following a surge in the spread of coronavirus.

Clubs are currently facing a dilemma as they don't know whether the 2019/2020 league season will continue or will be annulled.

The Ghana FA are in deliberations with stakeholders with the intentions of resuming the Ghana Premier League and the other leagues.

Fabin says football in Ghana will require some divine intervention in order for the pandemic to subside for football to continue.

"The only thing that can help the clubs is the intervention of God so the COVID-19 will go so that football will come back to enable clubs get money from gate proceeds to ease their financial crises," he told Graphic Sports.

Fabin also says he is waiting for an outcome from the organizers of the leagues despite the uncertainties.

"Even some countries have truncated their league and declared some winners.

"The GFA has given themselves until June 30 to take a firm decision as to whether to continue or not.

"I believe we should wait for that declaration so we will take it from there," added the Aduana coach.

Aduana Stars are currently topping the log standings after 15 rounds of matches.
