Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association, Henry Asante Twum, has revealed the federation is waiting on the response of government before taking any step in relation to the fate of the 2019-2020 campaign.
Football in the West African nation has been suspended since mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic which has forced football clubs into financial distress owing to the unprecedented and unexpected inactivity.
Calls for the cancelation of the season has intensified in the past few weeks with many administrators lamenting about their deepening financial woes as Ghana’s coronavirus cases count surge.
In an interview with Kumasi-based Fox FM, Henry Asante Twum disclosed his outfit will patiently wait on the advise of the football association in order to take an informed decision.
“We are waiting on the response from the government. Whatever decision that comes out of it will be appreciated. If the government rejects it, we will go by it. Likewise, if they accepts it with recommendation, we will also appreciate it. The general public should give us little time on it” he concluded.
In a separate interview with Kumasi-based OTEC FM, Twum disclosed the GFA has given itself a grace period which will expire in June.
“We’ve given ourselves till the end of June. As an FA, we are dialoguing, consulting, taking views and exploring every single avenue or option which is available to us.”
