Techiman Eleven Wonders general manager Takyi Arhin has called on the Ghanaian Football Association (GFA) to call Great Olympics’ bluff and get the country’s 2018 Premier League (GPL) season underway.
The start of the new GPL season has been put on hold indefinitely following Olympics decision to twice serve the GFA with a court injunction following their relegation from the top flight in the previous campaign.
While the legal wrangles continue, Arhin wants the GFA to get the 2018 season underway for the good of the sport in the country.
"For me, the GFA must call the bluff of Olympics and go ahead with the league no matter what it will cost us," Arhin is quoted by Ghanasoccernet.
He added, "I think the FA has not handled this matter well. They have allowed Olympics to portray innocence when they are not.
"Imagine how they played ghetto league - with two coaches fighting with each other with two different teams. They end up being relegated and they turn around to disturb other clubs.”
The Eleven Wonders boss added that Olympics’ call for a 20-team league is nothing new: "Olympics have always been like that. I remember when they were relegated some seasons back, they paid people to moot for a 20-club league so that they could still play in the league.
"They have been overly pampered. I think a strong decision must be taken in them to face he stiffest punishment to serve as a deterrent to others," he added.
