Let’s Not Think About Resuming The Ghana Premier League Now - Daniel Nii Adjei
Veteran midfielder, Daniel Nii Adjei says it will not be right to think about resuming the Ghana Premier League at this point in time looking at the situation of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) disease.
The football season in the West African Country has been on suspension for the past few months as a precautionary measure against the spread of the Covid-19 in line with the government’s ban all public gatherings.
While the conversation on whether or not to abrogate the 2019/2020 Ghanaian football season continues, King Faisal midfielder Daniel Nii Adjei has added his voice.
In an interview with Kumasi-based Angel FM, the former Asante Kotoko player has stressed that human lives must be prioritized and hence the idea of resuming the league should not be on the table now.
“We should not think about playing the league now because the virus is dangerous. I’m currently into tennis at my house and I’m not thinking of a return to the pitch anytime soon. Human life is much important than football”, Nii Adjei said.
While the Ghana Football Association (GFA) is yet to take a decision on the fate of the season, the body has been given up to May 5, 2020, to furnish CAF with what it plans to do.
