"Since I'm in top form this season and stands the chance of landing a deal abroad, the league going on suspension at this moment has affected me and other players too,” Asamoah told

“The only job we have is playing football because we didn’t learn any other trade in addition to football.

“I will plead with the leaders to solve the problem at hand for our league to resume as soon as possible,” he added.
