President of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) Kwabena Yeboah has signalled his fear for local clubs should the 2019-20 football season be cancelled.
According to him, some football clubs go extinct if such a development should occur.
The Ghana FA suspended the current football season in March amid the CoronaVirus outbreak. This was in conformity with the governmentâ€™s ban on all public gatherings which forms part of measures announced by President Akufo-Addo to curb the spread of CoronaVirus.
With no end in sight and a final decision needed, pressure has been mounting on the GFA to take a decision in this regard.
Opinions from football stakeholders have been divided on this with a section badly calling for a scrapping of the season while others have shot against it and in the event outlined the likely implications such a decision will have on Ghana Football.
Adding his voice to the conversation Kwabena Yeboah who is also a seasoned commentator shared his fear that local clubs who are already struggling could suffer collapse should the season be nullified.
â€˜Even when the league was in full flight, the clubs suffered a great deal. Embarrassingly in Ghana, some of our players take home a poultry 100 dollars at the end of the month and you will just wonder how they will survive on that. If the league is cancelled, I bet you that quite a number of our teams could be extinct,â€ he told Joy Newsâ€™ PM Express Show.
Kwabena Yeboah used the opportunity to canvass government support for football clubs in these difficult times.
