Maxwell Konadu calls for broader consultation on the future of the 2019/20 season

Asante Kotoko head coach, Maxwell Konadu, says there should be a broader consultation among stakeholders before deciding whether the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League should be truncated or not amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The 2019/20 Ghana Premier League has been suspended since March due to the coronavirus outbreak in the country.

According to Maxwell Konadu, cancelling the current season must require a broader consultation between football clubs and the Ghana Football Association (GFA)

“We have to sit and analyze our current situation whether we have to truncate or continue the season.

“The stakeholders must all come on board and discuss whether we are far behind or can continue the season if we want to synchronize with the European calendar depending on the restart of the league”, he told Ohene-Bampoe Brenya on Happy Sports on Happy 98.9FM.

The former assistant coach of the Black Stars also mentioned that clubs will need up to six weeks to get players ready if the league is set to restart after July 31, 2020 when the ban on sporting activities is lifted.

“We will need about six weeks to get the players back in shape. We have to train, play some friendly matches and be ready for the league”

“Yes we will need up to six weeks to train and I agree with Maxwell. We have to prepare them psychologically, mentally and physically and this also requires time”, Hearts of Oak coach Nii Odoom also supported the view of his arch-rival.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is still engaging its stakeholders on the way forward and is set to announce the future of the season on June 30.
