Crown Aduana Stars league champions if GPL is cancelled - Yahaya Mohammed tells GFA

Aduana Stars FC forward, Yahaya Mohammed has said his side should be crowned league champions if the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League (GPL) is truncated due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Ghana's President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in his 10th address on measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus extended the ban on sporting activities till July 31 which has seen many club administrators urging the GFA to cancel the season due to time factor as there are plans to synchronize the local football calendar with that of the Europeans.

Yahaya Mohammed, a contender for the Goal King award in the suspended league, has said the Dormaa-based club should be declared champions per their standing on the league log if the season is cancelled.

"I would suggest that the Ghana FA takes the decision to continue the league. However, if the Ghana FA decide to cancel the league, the trophy must be given to Aduana Stars since we are on top of the league log": he told Angel FM.

According to sources, the GFA is hoping to continue with the season behind closed doors as a move to cancel the season may lead to some serious legal implications from its sponsors.
