Published on: 14 March 2020

The owner of Ghana Premier League side King Faisal FC Alhaji Karim Grunsah says the Ghana Football Association should consider suspending the Premier League because of Coronavirus.

The deadly virus has brought all sporting activities in the world to a stand still due to its rapid spread from persons to persons.

All top five Europeans leagues have been suspended until April 3.

On Thursday, Ghana confirmed two cases of coronavirus with the Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang Manu making it known at an emergency press briefing by the Information Ministry.

According to the 74-year-old, the Ghana Premier League, Division One League, Women's top-flight and other competitions should be halted until further notice.

"We should all pray that people in our country don't get infected with the deadly virus (Coronavirus) after two people were confirmed testing positive," Grunsah told OTEC FM

"The Ghana FA should be considering to suspend the Ghana Premier League and other competitions for weeks or months.

He added, "I know people will say it's because my team [King Faisal] is in the drop zone that's why I am making those suggestions. But we should be thinking of the lives of human first before football.

"We should follow the steps of other Football Association to suspend our football activities for weeks or months.

King Faisal are currently languishing at the bottom of the league table with six points after 14 matches played thus far.
