Blame GFA for cancellation of 2019/20 league season - J.E Sarpong

Veteran coach J.E Sarpong says the Ghana Football Association should be blamed for the cancellation of the 2019/20 league season.

On Tuesday, the Executive Council of the GFA annulled the current football season following a marathon meeting due to coronavirus pandemic.

The governing football body decided that no team will be relegated or promoted. They also named AshantiGold and Asante Kotoko as representatives for the continental competitions.

"The inaction of the Ghana Football Association caused the cancellation of the league. They didn't put in enough effort to get the league restarted. They didn't do enough to ensure that the league bounces back," Coach J.E Sarpong told Akoma 87.9 FM.

He further added that "Clubs must make a case for compensation for all the wasted effort and resources caused by the cancellation of the league."

Aduana Stars were on top of the table with 28 points after 15 matches played before the competition was cancelled.
