Government's decision and measures to streamline football in the country which has culminated in the indefinite suspension of all football-related activities in the country is beginning to have a serious negative consequence, particularly in the Ashanti region.

Radio Ghana has gathered that football club owners and managers have started asking their players to go home until further notice considering the prevailing situation where there seems to be no hope in sight regarding how soon foot balling could bounce back.

One of the Football Club Owners in the Ashanti region, Abdul Salam popularly called Sabato, told a private radio station this morning that, he has already asked all players of the New Edubiase Football Club, a Division One Club, to stop coming for training forthwith until further notice.

Sabato, whose team was relegated from the Premier League after the 2015/2016 season, indicated that he would eventually disband the entire New Edubiase Football Club after a month if government does not cause for a resumption of the game in the country.

According to him, without active football activities, it will be very difficult for Club Owners to run their Teams since they have no alternative means of generating income for expenses.

Sabato said the best way forward after the investigative exposè was to ask the suspects to stay away and allow football to continue, considering the repercussions.
