Ghana Football Association medical team member Dr. Prince Pamboe believes the postponement of the Ghana Premier League will have negative effect on players.

The 2017/18 Ghana Premier League which was scheduled to take off on Friday February 9, has been halted until further notice after Great Olympics served the Ghana Football Association a court injunction letter on Monday in protest of Bechem United fielding an unqualified against them last term.

"Nobody took notice of the negative effect the postponement will have on the players," Pamboe told Happy FM.

"Psychologically, it will eat deep into the heads of the players because they have prepared physically and mentally for the matches, only to hear the news that it's been postponed at the last moment."

"It will make all the preparations the teams have gone through go in vain. All the clubs have drawn their programs for the season, so I believe this will have a telling blow on them, but more especially those playing on Friday."

"It's becoming a canker in our football and the earlier we can solve such issues the better," he concluded.
