Asante Kotoko boss, Maxwell Konadu has called for the resumption of football behind closed doors.

Football in the West African country has come to a standstill since mid-March this year amid the coronavirus outbreak in the country.

With the Ghana Football Association (GFA) yet to make a pronouncement on the future of football on June 30, President Akufo-Addo has extended the ban on social and public gatherings until 31 July 2020.

Opinions are divided currently with many calling for the cancellation of the season with many calling for the return of football without fans.

For Konadu, if football should resume, then at least, it must be behind closed doors.

“If we will continue the season, then we can start without spectators. We cannot allow all of us to throng to the stadium if we start now,” he told Happy FM.

“If we start with the empty stadium it will help so that we don’t spread the virus. We have no choice, that’s how things have become or we might as well stay home. We cannot risk lives.”

“So if we will resume playing, then its best we play without fans. We cannot take risks at all,” he added.
