The Chief Executive Officer of Aduana Stars, Albert Commey, has welcomed the decision by the Premier League Board (PLB) to put the competition on hold to allow clubs to have full strength teams upon resumption.
Commey said it was prudent for the PLB to take such a decision since Asante Kotoko were still recovering from their fatal accident, while some key players of the participating clubs have been invited to the Black Stars B.
He, however, explained that all the 16 clubs approved of the break after the proposal was tabled by the PLB before the final decision was arrived at.
The PLB decided to suspend the top flight league for a month until August 27 to allow the Black Stars B to prepare for the 2017 WAFU Tournament to be hosted by Ghana next month.
But that decision has raised eyebrows, with many claiming that the break could take away the excitement generated in the top flight.
In an interview with the Graphic Sports, Commey noted that it was important to allow all the players in the Black Stars B to return to their clubs since their omission could affect their clubs’ chances in the league.
“I believe it was the best decision by the PLB to put the league on hold because it will be in the interest of every participating team.
“You have to allow every player that has been called into the Black Stars B team to return and play for his club at this crucial stage of the league because a player can make a difference,” Commey said.
