Teen sensation Mathew Anim Cudjoe is pleading with government to ease restrictions on football, calling for the return of the game which he says is his 'life.' 

A poetic Cudjoe in an emotional message called on the President, Nana Akufo Addo, to give the green light for the return of football insisting he wants to 'smell the grass again.'

The Ghana Premier League has been suspended since March following the outbreak of COVID-19 in the West African nation.

"I want to smell the grass again, get the feel of the ball on my boots. I plead with the President to lift the ban on Sports. My life is incomplete without football. The game is about discipline and fair play so to follow the protocols is very easy," Cudjoe posted on Twitter.

On Sunday, President of the country, Nana Addo announced that female youth national teams, the Black Maidens and Black Princess would be allowed to start training in preparations for international assignments in September.

However, there was no information on the return of the Ghana Premier League.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association has already identified the second week October as the return date for the top-flight, but subject to government approval.

The 2019/20 season has been cancelled because of the global pandemic.
