The Phobians' attacker wants an early fix of the current Ghana Football Association troubles to enable return of the topflight

Hearts of Oak playmaker Winful Cobbinah wants the Ghanaian government to fast-track activities to restore football in the country after a recent embargo on the beautiful game. 

Following a recent investigative documentary which exposed corrupt and match-fixing activities of top officials and referees of the Ghana Football Association, the authorities have stepped up actions to "dissolve" the body in a bid to "sanitize" the system. 

All football activities have been suspended indefinitely, pulling the plug on the Ghana Premier League and the FA Cup.

"Our careers are on the line and so we plead with government to ensure players are not affected unduly," Cobbinah told Asempa FM.

"Football is our profession and so if we keep staying at home, it will affect us.

"Like I said, whatever should be done to ensure we return to the pitch sooner rather than later should be done."

As part of its plans, government has announced an Interim Management Committee to manage football and all related activities. 

The committee is set to hold discussions with Fifa and Caf to "discuss current developments in Ghanaian football administration and to chart the way forward."

However, Ghana faces being banned by Fifa from football due to government's interference, a move that could further disrupt the calendar of the local league.
