Cancellation of Ghana football season is satisfying – Inter Allies coach Tony Lokko

Assistant coach of Ghana Premier League side, Inter Allies, Tony Lokko has expressed satisfaction following the cancelation of football season in the country.

The Ghana FA’s executive council after a marathon meeting yesterday decided to annul the season which had been suspended since March 16 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The decision is deemed as devastating for a football industry that was about finding its feet after close to 2 years on non-competitive action due to a period of normalization after the Anas Exposé.

Many football connoisseurs rooted for cancellation of the season as they cited as practically impossible for football to resume in the circumstances the country found itself in.

Asked about how feel following the truncation of the season, he said, “I think it is welcomed and long overdue. We expected it because when the game went for a break we all saw that the virus was not making it possible for us to resume”

“Looking at the situation at hand, even if we are to resume the preparation towards the game will take a longer time so I think it is a good idea from the Ghana FA to cancel the league for now and prepare for a better calendar” he told S.K Ntim of Bryt FM

“In fact we are all happy it has come that way though the FA may be losing certain things but technically it is a welcoming news for the coaches I believe” he said.
