"My team is ready to compete in Africa" - Ashgold coach Duah

Published on: 05 June 2020

Ashanti Gold SC head coach Thomas Duah says his outfit is ready to compete in Africa if the 2019/20 league season is annulled and representatives for Africa declared.

Ashgold was 5th on the league table with 25 points, three points adrift leaders Aduana Stars before the suspension of the league in mid-March as part of measures to help curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Recently, the President of Ghana, Nana Akuffo Addo extended the ban on sporting activities to July 31 however, the GFA has set June 30 as the date they decide the future of the league.

The Miners qualified to play in last season's Caf Confederation Cup after clinching the Normalisation Committee Special Competition Tier 2.

"My team is ready to compete in Africa, technical team and management have discussed this, and should the opportunity come, we will go again and make sure we do better than we did the last time," he told Oyerepa FM.

Meanwhile, restrictions on non-contact sports have been eased, similar to religious and educational organisations.

The GFA proposed weekly testing of all players and also training in smaller groups but did not meet the expectation of the government.
