President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku has said football in the country has really suffered for the past three years and will take the intervention of God to recover again.

“Just when our football was recovering then the world is hit with #COVID19. The football industry has really suffered for the last three years. For us to recover again, God must intervene,’’ Mr Okraku told Accra based Happy FM.

“The football industry is one that has suffered a lot. We had our own ‘COVID-18’ because football activities had been cancelled for close to two years, from employment to financial loses,” he added.

The top-flight and lower flight football has been halted following the directive by the president to ban all social gatherings to help slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

There is great uncertainty when the country's topflight league will return as there is no end in sight for the pandemic.

The Ghana Football Association are yet to make a determination on the fate of the league despite fruitful discussions with the clubs and Regional Association a fortnight ago.

The FA said they need some time to do further consultations with major stakeholders before making a definite conclusion on the 2019-20 campaign.
