According to him, the best option for Ghana to synchronize its football calendar with the Europeans is to start the season afresh.

"... the GFA have to give us time to prepare our team when the pandemic is over to play the second round because you can't tell us to resume immediately (play the following week), he told Asempa FM.

"We need at least two weeks to a month to prepare and play the league of which time is not on our side because we want to synchronize with the European calendar.

"Clubs also are not disciplined as regards fielding unqualified players which need to be addressed because it will affect the league.

"The 2019/20 football should be voided for us to go to Congress ...," he added.
