Ghana’s representatives in next season’s CAF Confederation Cup, Ashantigold have outlined plans to start preparations ahead of the competition despite the restrictions on contact sports.
Football in Ghana has been halted since March this year due to the outbreak of COVID-19, with the topflight league cancelled.
But Ashantigold have been handed the slot to represent the country in the CAF Confederation Cup, forcing the club to start plans for preparations, hoping restrictions will be lifted.
The club’s medical chief, Dr. George Chidi has disclosed that the Miners will undergo all necessary assessments including the COVID-19 test before they begin group training.
“We are done with the pre competition medical assessment and the COVID-19 test is slated for Saturday and will be in batches of 10,” he told Kumasi FM.
“We wrote a proposal to the KCCR and informed them about our intentions and they agreed to help us so it’s free.
“Players who test positive will be isolated and managed accordingly.
“The players will not be allowed to go back to the society after the test.
“When we are done we will look at the percentage of players that are negative and write a proposal to government and GFA for an opportunity to start small groups training,”he concluded.
