The vice president of Inter Allies FC Delali Senaya has described as a paltry the much awaited FIFA Covid -19 relief fund to help ease the financial burden on local clubs in the country.
The Ghana Football Association is to receive $500,000 in emergency as football’s world governing body FIFA is set to release operational funds for 2019 and 2020 amounting to $150 million to its member associations.
The bailout is the first step of a relief plan to help negate the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.Each of FIFA ‘s 211 member associations would receive $500,000 in the coming days as well as any remaining entitlements for 2019 and 2020.
The coronavirus outbreak has brought soccer to a standstill and clubs have struggled to cope with the loss of revenue.
But Delali Senaya who is a member of the premier league committee insists the money can’t solve their immediate problems let alone their entire huge problems.
“Form me looking at the needs of this industry, those monies they are like a drop they can’t solve our immediate problems let alone our problems “
“But those reliefs will create a good and solid ground for our industry to grow”Senaya told Starr Sports.
