πŸ˜·πŸ”΄ COVID-19: Alhaji Karim Gruzah warns against Ghana Premier League restart

King Faisal Babies chief Alhaji Karim Grusah, has cautioned Ghanaian authorities about blindly following the actions of Europeans.

While the Ghana Premier League remains suspended due to the Covid-19 outbreak, several stakeholders and fans have increasingly called for the resumption of the season behind closed doors - which is the same model that has been taken in places like Germany, England and Spain.

“Those who are clamouring for the league to start because some European leagues have started are oblivious of the fact that facilities in Europe cannot be compared with what we have in Ghana, hence the need to hold on to the suspension of the Premier League until the infection rate of the COVID-19 comes down drastically,” Grusah told Graphic Sports Online.

"These lucrative sponsorships in Europe are totally absent in Ghana so how can we play our matches in empty stadiums as is being done in Germany, England, Italy and Spain?”

“Before any match is played in Europe, players are tested at a cost. Do we have such facilities in Ghana and are we ready to bear the cost of testing players and officials of each team before each match?” concluded Grusah.

Meanwhile, the GFA and GPL decision-makers gave themselves a July 31 deadline to make the final decision on the 2019/20 season.
