Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi has hit back at critics who says the Ghana Premier League is dead and has lost followers.
Kwesi Nyantakyi says the Ghana Premier League trending on social media is enough evidence that the competition is not dead.
The 2017/18 Ghana Premier League season started off at the weekend after some legal challenges between Accra Great Olympics and the GFA.
Speaking to the media on Monday Kwesi Nyantakyi said : “If the league is dead, why would Dr Ndoum invest to upgrade in facilities in Elmina and why will Dr Issahaku invest in a Division One team (Tamale City FC)?
“The start of the league was good and the attendance in Tema (at the Inter Allies vs Bechem United match) was impressive. The fans were starved of the league by the court cases.” he added.
Nyantakyi went on to explain that the late start of the league would push the FA to play matches during weekdays to make up for the time lost due to the court cases with Great Olympics.
