Premier League will suffer during AFCON – Jacob Nettey

With the 2014/2015 First Capital Plus League commencing on the same day as the 2015 African Cup of Nations, assistant coach of Bechem United, Jacob Nettey is expecting the tournament to over shadow the league in the first four weeks.

The league is expected to kick start on Sunday, January 18, 2015 at all the venues across the country, but Hearts of Oak, who are serving a two home match ban will get proceedings underway at the Kpando stadium in their ‘home’ game against WAFA on Saturday.

The tournament in Equatorial Guinea will start on the same day January 17 and end on February 8, 2015.

And this according to the former Hearts of Oak youth coach will take the excitement out of the league until the competition is over.

“Indeed a lot of attention will be going towards the AFCON because of the Black Stars and the other teams in the competition. The league is very important to us as Ghanaians and there may be a few supporters trooping to the various stadia here and there, but I believe the league will suffer a little during the AFCON”, Jacob Nettey mentioned in an interview with sportscrusader.com.
