Ashantigold defender Eric Donkor gives GFA thumps up on decision to cancel Ghana season

Published on: 02 July 2020

Ashantigold defender, Eric Donkor has thrown his weight behind the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to annul football season in the country, saying it is a welcoming news.

The Ghana FA’s executive council after a marathon meeting on Tuesday, June 30 decided to annul the season which had been suspended since March 16 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The decision is deemed as devastating for a football industry that was about finding its feet after close to 2 years on non-competitive action due to a period of normalization after the Anas Exposé.

Many football connoisseurs rooted for cancellation of the season as they cited as practically impossible for football to resume in the circumstances the country found itself in.

Speaking to S.K Ntim on Bryt Power Sports, he shared that he has no problem with the truncation of the season as he strongly believes human lives matter most than football.

“When you listen carefully to the president, Nana Akuffo-Addo you could see clearly that football is not going to resume anytime soon. So I wasn’t surprise when the Ghana cancelled the season”

“We should ask ourselves if we can emulate the Europeans who have restart their season. Can we go by their measure in Ghana, these are some of the questions we should ask ourselves. So I think it cancelling the season is in the right direction because human lives matter” he said
