The League Can Continue If GFA Pay Clubs $150,000 - Alhaji Grusah
Owner of Kumasi King Faisal Football Club, Alhaji Grusah has shared that clubs will accept to continue with the Premier League should the Ghana Football Association give every club a sum of $150,000.
The outspoken football administrator has in the past advocated for the cancelation of the season in the West African country to guarantee the safety of the players and all stakeholders from the Coronavirus (Covid-19) disease.
Though Alhaji Grusah stands by that position, he also believes clubs can work around the problem and continue the Premier League if the Ghana FA will be able to support them with a cash sum of $150,000.
"I am the first person to have spoken about the cancellation of the season when this COVID 19 came into existence.
"We are heading towards June so when can we finish the season and start with the new season? It is impossible. Countries like Angola, Ethiopia, etc have canceled their season so why don't we do same?”, Alhaji Grusah rhetorically asked in an interview won Space FM.
He added, “Germany is playing an empty stadium, but the clubs have big sponsors, what about the GPL?.
“If the FA can give we the clubs an amount of $150,000, we can play the league, because of its all about money. You have no idea of the amount of debts I have incurred out of running King Faisal”.
Meanwhile, the GFA is making further deliberations with the government and other stakeholders to find a way of continuing the football season that will guarantee the safety of everyone.
