It’s Difficult For A GPL Player To Marry And Keep A Happy Home – Eric Donkor
Former Ashanti Gold SC defender, Eric Donkor has noted that it is very difficult for a player from the local league to get married and keep his home happy.
His claim is coming on the back of the meager salaries most players receive in the various Ghana Premier League clubs.
One of the main problems that continue to set football back in the West African country is the poor wages of players.
Speaking to Accra-based Angel FM, Eric Donkor has maintained that the situations leave many Premier League players unmarried because they cannot keep their homes happy when they do.
“It is difficult for a Ghana premier league player to marry and keep a happy home”, he noted.
According to the full-back who has played for Asante Kotoko in the past as well, football in the country is lacking behind and leaders should work on minimum wage for players.
“My salary at Kotoko was way higher than that of Ashgold. Ghana Football is really lacking behind in terms of the salary players receive. Hopefully, even if the leaders cannot arrive at a minimum wage for us, they should try for the next generation”, the free agent added.
