Kotoko midfielder Kwame Adom Frimpong wants the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season to be cancelled due to the growing records of the Coronavirus.
Ghana’s reported cases have increased immensely since the country recorded its first case two month ago.
The situation has forced the government of Ghana to impose a ban on all social gathering including football activities.
The Ghana Premier League has been on suspension since March with an unknown resumption date.
Frimpong wants the League to be truncated to protect the lives of footballers in the country.
“We should declare the season null and void,” Adom Frimpong told Kotoko Express App
“We are faced with a deadly virus and our focus must be on saving lives than football. It would be better to call off the season and wait until the pandemic is over before we start a new one than to play in an empty stadium.
“Here in Ghana, clubs find it very difficult to cope when made to play behind closed doors so holding the remaining games without the fans should not even be an option.
“Football is nothing without the fans at the stadia. The fans will not even go the stadia if authorities even decide to allow them because they will fear to contract the virus.
“We must focus on saving human lives and not put people at risk because of the game.”
Cancellation of the League will mean Ghana have not been able to complete a full season in the last two years after the 2018/19 season was also called off due to an expose by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
