Harry Zakour, a former chairman of Accra Hearts of Oak, has implored the government to come to the aid of clubs when football resumes.

The 2019/20 domestic football season came to a standstill in mid-March due to the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has proposed that the 2020/21 football season will kick start in October without the supporters at the stadium.

“We have all felt the impact of the coronavirus pandemic,” he said.

“It was unexpected and I believe that when football fully returns, government and the ministry of sports should come together and help the clubs."

“Supporters will not be allowed to go to the various stadia so there would be no revenue for the clubs so they will need the support of government."

“We all hope for the best but the clubs at the moment cannot do it alone,” he added," he told Asempa FM.
