Aduana Stars forward Yahaya Mohammed believes the idea of playing games behind closed doors will hugely affect revenues streams of clubs in Ghana if it is considered as an option following COVID-19.

The Ghana Premier League is currently on hold because of the outbreak of the cornavirus, but there are considerations to play games behind close doors should the topflight resume in other to control the spread of the virus.

However, the bulky forward does not think it will be a good option for football administrators in the country, who largely depend on gate proceeds to finance their clubs.

"Playing Ghana Premier League games behind closed doors will affect club owners big time," Yahaya Mohammed told Sikka Sports.

Mohammed was enjoying a good season, having bagged 11 goals before the suspension of the league. The 32-year old reveals it's been tough for players since the halting of football.

"It has not been easy with the suspension but taking your personal training serious is important," says the attacker.

The Black Stars player insists it will be a bumpy when the game resumes after COVID-19.

"It will be a ding dong affair after Covid-19," Yahaya concluded.
