President of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) and veteran commentator Kwabena Yeboah has warned clubs may ‘go extinct’ if the suspended Ghana Premier League season is completely annulled as proper by some club administrators.
The 2019/2020 football activities in the West African country have been frozen since March after a ban was placed on social media by government due to spread of COVID-19 pandemic.
But speaking on PM Express on May 20, 2020, Mr Yeboah echoed that the local clubs could crumble if the season is cancelled.
‘Even when the league was in full flight, the clubs suffered a great deal. Embarrassingly in Ghana, some of our players take home a poultry 100 dollars at the end of the month and you will just wonder how they will survive on that. If the league is cancelled, I bet you that quite a number of our teams could be extinct,” Mr Yeboah told Gary Al-Smith on PM Express.
The SWAG President also appealed to government to assist clubs with some stimulus package in order to lessen the financial package of the clubs in this COVID-19 pandemic period.
Kwabena Yeboah was on the show with sportscaster Robert Marawa and international commentators Peter Drury and Jon Champion.
