Bad precedence: Hearts MD lashes out at GFA

The Managing Director for the Phobians, Gerald Ankrah has expressed his frustration over the decision of the Premier League Board and the Ghana Football Association to give the green light to the commencement of the second round of the Ghana Premier League at the time his side will be participating in the CAF Confederations Cup.

The First Capital Plus Premier League, which went on a one month break will commence on Sunday in 7 league centres across the nation.

Hearts of Oak, who are at the moment the sole representative of Ghana in continental assignment, will take on Esperance of Tunis in their quest to overturn 0-4 first leg defeat in Tunis, making their game against Ashanti Gold to be declared outstanding.

‘The GFA and the PLB have set a bad precedence and now they have shown that no matter which team is playing in Africa the league must go on. We thought that Hearts of Oak being the only Ghanaian club in Africa, the organisers would favour us by postponing the entire league.

‘Already there have been some weeks without Premier league football, so why can’t they wait for us to play Esperance before allowing the 2nd round to begin, instead our game against Ashgold has been declared outstanding. In this case all of us will not be given level playing ground,’ Ankrah told Fox fm.

Hearts of Oak are 10th on the league log and are 9 points separated from Ashgold who are sitting on the summit of the league.
