Truncate the League or consider me out - Abdul Salam Yakubu tells GFA

The President of New Edubiase United, Abdul Salam Yakubu has ruled out any move to participate in the Division One League if fixtures are congested by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) should the league resumes after July 31.

The current season has been suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic and with the government set to review the ban on July 31, talks are going on between the GFA and clubs on whether to continue or truncate the season.

According to him, any move by the GFA to continue the season by playing consistently during mid-week and weekends will be rejected by him.

Speaking in an interview, Abdul Salam Yakubu said, “There is no league that I am going to take part that is played consistently on Wednesdays and Sundays. There is no sponsorship and we are punishing the players. We the club administrators have to leave our jobs and be following the team around, he told Happy FM.

“There is no proper structured league in the world that plays consistently on those days. The proper leagues are played on weekends so the fans come also come in their numbers to watch”.

Abdul Salam joins a list of club administrators who have called for the season to be truncated amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

“For now we have to cancel the league, so the clubs can begin to prepare ahead of the new season”.

The GFA is currently engaging its stakeholders on the future of the 2019/20 football season and says it will announce a decision on June 30.
