I’m Worried About League Delay-Kwesi Nyantakyi

President of the Ghana Football Association and CAF first Vice President Kwesi Nyantakyi says he is worried about the delayed start of the Ghana Premier League.

Nyantakyi was speaking to the media after the Ministry of Youth and Sports Meet the Press organised by the Ministry of Information.

He said, “I am worried about the delayed start of the league as well as the other club administrators.

“I am a club owner as well and we are paying salaries of coaches and players and without the league going on it is very difficult”.

Kwesi Nyantakyi also mentioned that the 2017/18 season will start immediately when the impasse between Great Olympics and the Ghana Football Association is solved.

“We will be going to court on Thursday and if the ruling goes in our favour the league will start immediately”.

Great Olympics, one of three clubs relegated from the 2016/2017 league season, have put an injunction on the new Ghana Premier League season, demanding that cases before the Disciplinary Committee of the FA are resolved before a new campaign is started.

The 2018 Ghana Premier League was scheduled to kick off on February 11 but with the injunction, the start date was postponed.

Olympics are crying foul after their protests against unqualified players fielded by Bechem United were thrown out despite having proof.

The Disciplinary Committee of the FA annulled both cases which according to the constitution merit a deduction of six points.

And Olympics will not be relegated if points are deducted. Bechem, instead, will be demoted to the second tier.
