You have failed clubs in this coronavirus period - Joseph Yamin to Isaac Asiamah

Joseph Yamin, a former Deputy Minister for Youth and Sports under the NDC government has indicated that Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah has failed big time over his failure to secure funds from the government to support clubs.

Clubs in the Ghana Premier League, the National Division One League, as well as the Women's Premier League are going through a difficult period because of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.

In the last few months, many of the club owners have come out openly to cry for help to be able to pay their players and staff.

Waving into the current financial challenges clubs are going through, Joseph Yamin says it has exposed him for being an incompetent Sports Minister.

“Isaac Asiamah has failed as a Sports Minister because in this coronavirus era, he has failed to support Ghanaian clubs who are unable to pay the salaries of their players due to the suspension of football. The Coronavirus has exposed him big time in relation to his competence as a Minister”, the ex-Deputy Sports Minister told Accra-based Kingdom FM.

Meanwhile, it is understood that there are ongoing talks between the Sports Ministry and government to secure funds to support all sporting disciplines in the country.
