We will test the law should Kotoko & Ashgold represent Ghana in Africa – Aduana Stars PRO

Public Relations Officer of Aduana Stars FC, Evans Oppong, disagrees with the school of thought that the GFA should cancel the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic and allow Kotoko and Ashgold represent Ghana in Africa club competitions.

The GFA has requested two weeks extension from CAF to decide the future of the 2019/20 Ghana football season after the season was halted by the novel Coronavirus.

One of the decisions the FA is trying to sort before they consider to truncate the league will be the representatives they will present to CAF for the 2020/21 CAF Inter-Club competitions.

Meanwhile, Aduana Stars who are leading the league table has threatened to go to court if Kotoko and Ashgold are made Africa reps ahead of them.

In an interview with Kumasi FM, Evans Oppong spoke against the idea of choosing Asante Kotoko and Ashgold to represent Ghana in Africa.

“As a club, we have made our points clear, we believe human life is paramount over everything. We were the first club to release our players after the government suspended sporting activities because we cherish human life.

“We have listened to arguments from others calling for the cancellation of the league but as a club we want the league to be on a further hold and hope the disease and numbers start depreciating so we can restart the league,”

“Arguments of Kotoko and Ashgold representing Ghana in the next CAF inter-club competition are without basis," he added.
