Asante Kotoko SC head coach Maxwell Konadu has backed resumption of football activities in the country without fans.

Konadu says playing behind closed doors is less risky and the best option at the moment.

The Ghana Premier League together with other football competitions were halted in mid-March this year after government imposed a ban on social gatherings amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The hope of the resumption of football activities in Ghana was dashed after the government extended the ban on social and public gatherings until 31 July 2020.

The Ghana FA has set a deadline of 30 June to decide whether to continue or terminate the 2019/2020 season which is currently on suspension.

“If we will continue the season, then we can start without spectators. We cannot allow all of us to throng to the stadium if we start now,” he told Happy FM.

“If we start with the empty stadium it will help so that we don’t spread the virus. We have no choice, that’s how things have become or we might as well stay home. We cannot risk lives.”

“So if we will resume playing, then its best we play without fans. We cannot take risks at all.”
