Hearts of Oak midfielder Emmanuel Nettey has shared that he is itching to return to action with the Ghana Premier League scheduled to return in October.
Various leagues in the country including the Ghana Premier League that were suspended since March was subsequently cancelled by the Ghana Football Association due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The GFA have also announced that the new Ghana Premier League season will start in the second week of October pending government approval.
According to Nettey, he and his teammates are waiting for the league to restart.
“What we are all praying for is for football to return so we can go back.
It’s been rumoured that the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League will have a new format. According to the reports, the 18-clubs will be divided into Northern and Southern Zone.
Similar to the 2004/2005 season where Northern Zone leaders Hearts of Oak won the championship after pipping Asante Kotoko Southern Zone leaders at the finals.
“No matter the format they are going to use all we are praying for is that football should just come back,” he told Citi Sports.
“We are itching to play and or fans are itching to watch.
“What ever measures the FA have put in place for us we will embrace it,” he disclosed.
Meanwhile, GFA through a statement have announced that the transfer window for International players has been opened.
The statement said that the window for the international players will shut on Friday, October 23, 2020.
The country’s football governing body also confirmed the transfer window for local players will take place between August 15 and October 31.
