With hooliganism destroying the beauty of Ghana football and putting the life of spectators and officials in danger, former Ghana international Anthony Baffoe has called on the FA and PLB to ensure utmost security of all and sundry during Ghana Premier League matches.
The Ghana Premier League has old history of hooliganism destroying football and with 2016 Premier League season barely six days away, the FIFA general match coordinator wants security to be the key as that is the only way the league will end successfully.
“It is very important we place emphasis on security and match organization,” Tony Baffoe told Citi FM.
With the start of the new season delayed by about three months, fans are itching for club football and Anthony Baffoe is not an exception.
He was at the Dawu Park to watch Dreams FC engage Hearts of Oak to re-commission the venue which has not had premier league football for about a decade, and he could not hide his excitement as the start of the league draw nearer.
“I am happy that the league will finally start. I was in Dawu on Sunday to watch Dreams and Hearts of Oak and the stadium was filled to capacity.
“I can see that people are itching for the Premier League season and I hope we have improved attendances at the various match venues.” he said.
