The assistant head coach of Dreams FC, Winfred Dormon, has appealed to the government and the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to find a way to bring football back.
His comment follows the government’s restrictions on contact sports, as football fans eagerly anticipate the lifting of the ban on sports due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In a conversation with Class Sports, Coach Dormon expressed confidence that the COVID-19 precautionary measures will be strictly observed when football returns in Ghana.
“I believe that we should find a way to live through this pandemic because it is here with us.
“Should we stop football, should we stop our lives because of a virus?” he questioned.
According to Coach Dormon, if the government listens to “football people”, represented by the GFA, they will “definitely find a way.”
“Our health is very important, don’t get me wrong; but we also need our economic lives back,” Coach Dormon stated.
He believes that the GFA will put the necessary steps in place before the start of the league.
The 2019/20 football season was initially halted in March due to the outbreak of the coronavirus and was permanently cancelled in June.
Nonetheless, Ghana’s new football season is expected to start in October subject to approval by the government.
