Editor of Kotoko Express, Jerome Otchere is of the view that Ghana League Clubs Association, Premier League and the Ghana Football Association must shut down the stadium of Bolga All Stars.

The winning streak of the Warriors was halted by Bolga All Stars in their match day six fixture which was staged at the Tamale Utrecht Park.

The Warriors needed a win to pile the pressure on Aduana Stars but they unfortunately drew with the newly promoted side.

Striker Yakubu Mohammed scored the goal for Kotoko to hand them the lead but All Stars grabbed a late equalizer to deny the Warriors leaving them two points behind Aduana Stars.

Jerome however believes failing to secure all three points against All Stars is not a problem but if GHLACA, GFA and PLB wants the progression of the Premier League, the stadium Bolga All Stars using must be shut down.

“What happened at the stadium yesterday was very awful because we can’t continue to use this kind of stadium in our league.” He told Asempa FM.

“The Temale Utrecht pitch was dry, dusty and it was difficult to play on the pitch and the risk of getting injury was very high.

“I think the stadium should be shut completely because it doesn’t qualify to be used as a stadium in our premier league.

“If we don’t have we have no reason to complain but the stadium Bolga All Stars are using is very bad and I will urge GHALCA and PLB to stand and take bold decisions because it is an insult to the integrity of our premier league if people go round and approves such pitches.

“Referee Otis Oppong had to help Bolga All Stars in other to save his life because there were six big men who had access to the inner perimeter. The second half was delayed for ten minutes and it took the intervention of police men to help the referee.

“What I want to ask is that we are playing football in a jungle? It is about time we take decisions about how to run the league professionally.” He added.
