The former goal king says the hiatus in the top-flight may affect his chances of playing in Europe this summer

Techiman Eleven Wonders striker Alex Asamoah is concerned about the suspension placed on football in Ghana by government.

Following the exposé by undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas in June, over 77 referees and football administrators were caught on camera accepting bribes to influence Ghana Premier League results, leading to an indefinite suspension on all football related activities.

According to Goal's sources, the ministry of Youth and Sports Isaac Asiamah will meet a delegation from Fifa on Friday to discuss the way forward.

"Since I'm in top form this season and stands the chance of landing a deal abroad, the league going on suspension at this moment has affected me and other players too,” Asamoah told footballmadeinghana.com.

“The only job we have is playing football because we didn’t learn any other trade in addition to football.

“I will plead with the leaders to solve the problem at hand for our league to resume as soon as possible,” he added.

Asamoah, who won the goal king in 2009, has scored four goals after 15 games and won two Man of the Match awards, as his club occupy 10th position on the table with 17 points.
