Some players and coaches in Ghana’s professional football leagues have told the BBC they are “scared” to resume playing and that football is “not ready”.
This despite the government of the west African country, which has had more than 32,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19, being keen for football to return and has approved a resumption in mid-August.
However the Ghana Football Association (GFA) would prefer to restart in October.
There has been no football in Ghana since the suspension of sporting activities in March amid the coronavirus pandemic.
But some players and technical team members told BBC Sport Africa that they fear more players contracting the virus upon resumption.
“We are not ready for our football to come back.” said Tony Lokko, Inter Allies coach.(BBC)
