Dr. Adam Baba outlines GFA’s blueprint to bringing football back

Head of the Medical Committee of the Ghana Football Association, Dr. Adam Baba, says his outfit has provided a blueprint document on how to bring football back in the country.

Among the things recommended in their over 30 page document, includes providing mandatory weekly tests for players and essential staff as well as playing matches behind closed doors.

Football in Ghana has remained suspended since March, following the outbreak of Covid-19 in the country.

“Our first priority will be education. The other thing is to really emphasise on the PCMAs. Before the league starts, it should be ensured that all participating clubs do it and do it well,” Baba added.

“Before you recruit a player, he has to undergo a medical examination and a fitness test. But all these, we just brush it, once he is playing somewhere, he comes, we just take the forms and get a doctor to sign.

“So what we shall do is to audit the PCMAs because this thing must be done for future purposes.

“We don’t know, any accident can occur and the international federation would want to know what he went through medically before you allow him to participate in the competition. If we fail to produce it, we might be penalized.”

“Before football returns, we are also recommending that all players be made to go through mandatory covid-19 tests and all games be played behind closed doors,” he concluded.
