Ghana FA vice frustrated by League delay

Ghana FA Vice President George Afriyie has admitted being unhappy with the delay of the Premier League season.

This start of 2017/18 league is unknown following an injunction placed on it by Great Olympics.

"It is frustrating, I need to admit that because it is not easy but who cause am? He quizzed.

"It is one of the things we have to find a way to eradicate from our football because it is not helping.

"As a regulatory body we need to look at our rules and check if there is something we are not doing right, we check and do them because we can't continue like this."

The capital-based club succeeded in securing a court order to halt the commencement of the topflight which was supposed to kick start last weekend.

Olympics are protesting against the decision of the GFA’s Disciplinary committee which threw out their complaints against Bechem United and Elmina Sharks for fielding unqualified players.

Olympics finished 15th last season on a 16-club log, with 36 points, four points below safety but a ruling in their favour will save them from the drop.

And yesterday, an Accra High Court presided over by Justice Anthony Yeboah adjourned the case to February 21 after the first hearing.
