Former Western Region FA Chairman, Kojo Yankah has called on the leadership of Ghana Football Association to share the FIFA Convid-19 fund among stakeholders.

FIFA is set to pay each member association $500,000 to cover administrative and operational costs.

Spokesperson of the association Henry Asante Twum during the week stated emphatically that, the money from FIFA is for the FA and not clubs.

This have generated a lot of argument in the country as to whether clubs will benefit from the money or not.

But the former Executive council member of the FA has called on the domestic football governing body to share the money across board.

“I will suggest to the Ghana FA to share the money across board. Clubs, GFA itself and other stakeholders must get some because the $500,000 can do a lot of things”

“The coronavirus has affected everyone so I will urge the football association to assist stakeholders when the money comes” he told Happy FM.
