Kotoko CEO George Amoako not sure if football will return soon

George Amoako, the Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko has said it will take some time before football official returns.

In the wake of the coronavirus, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has suspended football indefinitely to help curb the spread of the virus.

However, the FA is expected to make a final pronouncement on June 30 on the future of football.

Football has been suspended since March 15.

Amoako, who doubles as a member of the GFA’s Executive Council, believes it will all take some time before football return.

“In the light of what we are seeing in this Covid-19 period, I don’t see our way clear in starting football competitions in the next two months," he told 3news.

Mr Amoako believes that processes to bring football back are complex but truncating it now would be a bit premature.

“Even if we are made to start tomorrow, we will have to train for a minimum of four weeks before you set your team together to be able to play competitive games and that will take you beyond July.

“So for now, let us wait and see. Let’s wait and get the advice from the medical practitioners and the politicians and then we will be able to take a decision going forward," he added.
