Published on: 25 June 2020

Shareholder for Legon Cities FC, Fred Agbenyo has appealed to the government to help clubs to conduct Coronavirus (Covud-19) testing for players. 

In the midst of the suspended football season, clubs will be required to test players for the deadly disease before the season makes a return in the West African country.

Speaking to Atinka FM, Fred Agbenyo has confirmed that Legon Cities FC has already conducted tests for all of its players.

"We have conducted a COVID-19 test for all our players and staff and by the grace of God it all came negative”, he said.

According to him, the government should support clubs in the country financially in order for all players to be tested.

“How much is $80? If we have done it, then gov't should support other clubs to test their players too”, Mr. Fred Agbenyo noted.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) will decide the fate of the 2019/2020 football season on Tuesday, June 30, 2020.
