Following Anas Aremeyaw Anas exposé on the Ghana Football Association, Fifa and Caf Liaison team member for Ghana, Francis Oti-Akenteng has revealed that the 2017-18 Ghana Premier League season has been truncated.
Speaking on Angel Fm, Mr Oti-Akenteng revealed that the new season will likely begin in August next year after some referees and top Ghana football administrators were caught on camera indulging in fixed matches.
“We all want the best so let us use this period to improve the standard of our league with this glorious opportunity from God.
“Many Ghanaians said they want our calendar to move with the European calendar which starts in August/September but let me ask are we ready for it this year? Definitely No!
“So we have one year difference which is next year to organize our league and we must all support this idea.”
According to him, this is the right time to clean up the mess in Ghana Football and synchronize the local season with the European calendar.
“It got to a time that Ghanaians stayed for six months without the premier league so let’s wait for just one year and see what we can do.
“We are still experiencing some difficulties as Liaison team so Ghanaians must exercise some patience.”
The Ghana Football Association was exposed by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas which led to Kwasi Nyantakyi, the FA president resigning after President Akufo-Addo ordered for his arrest.
