‘Change league calendar’ – Ainooson to PLB

The irregular running of the league and improper synchronization with the European calendar has raised eyebrows in recent years, and the latest player to join the call for change is Ashanti Gold player Abeiku Ainoonson.  

The Premier League Board (PLB) has in previous years struggled to maintain a smooth running of the league with intermittent breaks, coupled with alleged match of convenience among clubs in the topflight league.

The league is to go on a one week break to make way for quarter finals of the MTN FA Cup and subsequently go on another break in September as the CHAN Tournament takes center stage.

Speaking exclusively to Kofi Larbi on Abusua FM, Ainoonson, who is on loan from Asante Kotoko revealed is not happy with the situation.

“We are learning gradually and there is more room for improvement. One big problem with the league is the calendar. It’s one thing that worries the running of the league. We thought the league was ending in early September clearly it might end in October.

“One thing is, players eager to move outside of the country won’t be able to go because the league hasn’t ended. In my situation, I can’t leave Ashanti Gold because they need me badly since we are fighting to survive in the relegation. So I think the calendar should be critically looked at,” he said.
