Harrison Addo claims safety measures will be put in place before league resumes

Published on: 03 June 2020

The General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association Prosper Harrison Addo has stated that safety measures will be put in place before the league resumes.

All football leagues in the country have been halted since mid-March as part of measures to help curb the spread of the disease.

Speaking to Angel FM in an interview, the former GFA Disciplinary Committee, Chairman revealed that there will be measures in place before football restart to ensure players and the technical staff are safe from the Covid-19.

"There will be guidelines and protocols to observe before football in the country can bounce back. On the other hand, if we are to cancel the season then we need to consider the financial and legal implications as well", he said.

He further said, he was disappointed by comments made the National Sports Authority (NSA) Peter Twumasi on GFA missing out on the stimulus package from the government.

"I am very disappointed in NSA director-general Prof. Twumasi utterances about how is he going about with the government stimulus package we are trying to secure," he added.

According to reports in the local media, the Football Association was hoping to continue the season behind closed doors but those proposals were rejected by the government.

The 2019/20 Premier League was at its match week 15 stage when it was halted with Aduana Stars leading the table with 28 points.
