Ghana Premier League suspension will halt players' development, says Nguessan

The Phobians midfielder says the ban on football in the country is a thing of worry to many footballers

Hearts of Oak midfielder Camara Nguessan feels the ban on football in Ghana will have a toll on players' development in the long run.

Following the premiering of an investigative work by Ghanaian undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, it was confirmed that several referees and top football administrators accepted bribes to manipulate results of matches.

Government has consequently placed an indefinite suspension on all football-related activities in the country, with the second round of Ghana Premier League earlier scheduled for kick-off on July 8.

“It is very sad that this has happened in this country. Ghana is a powerhouse of African football and in the world at large, therefore, a ban on Ghana Premier League will affect the players and their development,” Nguessan told Footballmadeinghana.

“I always have tears in the eyes whenever I see Ghanaian football in this state. Personally, the first round of the league has gone well for me although I joined Hearts very late. I was able to catch up and I have taken my training seriously. 

“I pray that the league will resume soon because it worries us a lot,” he added.

Fifa has appointed two liaison officers to in an effort to restore normalcy in the game.

“My target for the season when it resumes is to help my club finish in a good position on the log," he said.

“The fans should also back me and my teammates so that we can achieve our aims for the season,” he added.
