President of Techiman City Football Club, Charles Kwadwo Ntim popularly known in the media circles as Micky Charles has called for the suspension of the 2019/20 Ghana football season due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Ghana FA is engaging clubs over the subject matter as they have been given up to May 5 to respond to CAF on the future of the Ghana Premier League.

According to Micky Charles there is no clear path when football will return due to the pandemic so it will be advisable and safe to call off the season to save lifes.

“This is not about our position on the league table now. Life is more important at this stage than football. We should consider the health situation than football. This is the time we should go to congress and correct some of our statutes, monitor situations going on in other Federations. Now we are in April and we don’t know when the Covid-19 will disappear”, Happy FM.

On selecting representatives for Ghana in the CAF Inter-Club competitions, should the league be cancelled he said, “There is a way out so we can let the clubs play around robin and then select teams to play in Africa”.
