Communication Director of Accra Hearts of Oak, Kwame Opare Addo says that his club have not breached any rule by training together without taking the COVID-19 test.
There has been no football in the nation for nearly six months due to the coronavirus pandemic which led to the cancellation of the 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League season.
During the President's 17th coronavirus address to the nation, restrictions on football and all contact sports was lifted but with the observance of all COVID-19 protocols.
Clubs were advised to undergo the COVID-19 tests with the coast been borne by the state before they can begin group training.
That notwithstanding Hearts of Oak and a host of other clubs have began group training without taking the coronavirus test.
According to Opare Addo no instructions have been given to clubs to test their players for coronavirus before training can begin.
“We have not done any testing but we will do it,” Opare Addo told Atinka FM
“Nobody told us to do testing before resuming training, nobody said that so no one should think that we’ve done something wrong, we’ve not.”
“And we are not waiting for government before we will conduct our testing, we have our own schedule”
“If you test your players to resume training from home, what will be the sense of doing that test, whiles you are even exposing that person to the rest of the world.”
“Immediately we do the test we will make sure that everybody is not going anywhere and it’s not long from now that we will do it.” He added.
