The management of Kumasi Asante Kotoko are worried about the huge financial implication that may arise if government does not expedite actions to have the Zylofon Premier League resumed in the shortest possible time.
As it stands now, all football related activities in the country have been brought to a halt after the airing of the investigative piece by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyew Anas on the rot that has engulf the fairness of football in the country.
The Attorney General, Mrs. Gloria Akuffo, few days ago secured an interim injunction from the High Court to ban all activities of the Ghana Football Association. The order of the court therefore bans the GFA and its officials from carrying out official duties for at least ten days.
Nana Akwesi Gyemibi, who is a Special assistant to the CEO of kotoko, Dr. Kwame Kyei, disclosed in the interview that, although the motive of government is right in trying to restore football, the effect of governments’ decision to dissolve GFA will financially burden Kotoko and several clubs.
“We have contract with our players and employed some staffs who are working at the secretariat, some also working, and if at the end of the day, after a month or two we are not playing it will be very difficult to look after their salary and other things”. He said.
“Is not Kotoko alone that will go through all this difficulty, it’s an extensive thing, other clubs are also experiencing”. He added.
He has therefore called on government to expedite actions to see the resumption of the Premier League and all football related activities, so managers of football teams and football fans will have great time to enjoy the game.
“That is why we are calling on government that they speed up whatever they are doing so that the football season can come back for us to have a good game” he said.
