Prosper Harrison Addo, the general secretary of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), says that clubs will need additional time to restart the Premier League season.
The country’s top flight division, like most leagues around the world, is in the midst of a suspension as part of the efforts to fight against the spread of coronavirus.
The disease has infected hundred of thousands of people across the globe, with tens of thousands losing their lives.
The Ghana Premier League has only recently got going again in its full form after the country’s football was rocked by a corruption scandal which necessitated oversight from FIFA.
This further disruption means people in Ghana are eager to see the league resume as soon as is safely possible, but Addo insists they will not be rushing into anything.
“We must give the clubs some time to train their players and reorganise before playing football again,” Addo said on Joy FM on Saturday, as quoted by Goal.
“We can’t just let the clubs play immediately after the coronavirus comes to an end.
“We have to observe safety measures such as washing of hands, avoiding shaking of hands and so on.”
At the time the Ghana Premier League was suspended, Aduana Stars held top spot with 28 points from 15 matches, closely followed by Medeama and Berekum Chelsea.
