Former Asante Kotoko coach Malik Jabir has revealed that he will never advise the GFA to resume football anytime soon.
“Let’s be objective, only those who don’t fear the virus will call for the resumption of the league. The Europeans are well organised and will not lose anything because they have sponsors who will support them till the end of this season which we don’t have” Mr. Jabir told OTEC FM
“I prefer we wait till December, we might have known what to do by then if things remain the same.” He added
“I’m still in quarantine because I don’t want to risk (my life) so why should I advise other people to meet in the stadium” He Concluded
As a player, Malik Jabir belonged to the class of quality players who took Ghana football to the heights of glory. He was a key member of the Black Stars which he once captained. He savoured the unique honour of being selected into an African XI squad in the 70s.
Malik scored the winning goal for Kotoko when it won the Africa Cup the first time in 1970 in the final match against Englebert in Kinshasa.
As a coach, he masterminded Kotoko’s 5-1 demolition of reigning champions, Zamalek, in a semi-final club championship in Kumasi in 1987.
He was the assistant to Coach Ibrahim Sunday when Kotoko won the Africa Cup the second time in 1983 in the final against El-Ahli of Egypt in Kumasi.
Malik again led Kotoko to the final of the continent’s most prestigious competition in 1993 which Zamalek won on penalties in Egypt.
