Public Relations Officer (PRO) for Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Kennedy Boakye-Ansah has revealed that the management of the club has not considered pay cuts for its players.
In the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic which has halted the football season in almost every country in the world including the Ghana Premier League, the finances of clubs have been largely affected.
As the fight against the Covid-19 continues, it is unclear when the football season in the West African country will return. With clubs still paying players and staff, there have been calls for pay cuts for players as being done in Europe and other parts of the world.
Speaking to Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM on the matter today, Kennedy Boakye-Ansah has shared that it is not something the management of Asante Kotoko has considered.
He explained, “I have always had the conviction that European solutions can’t solve African problems, apart from Kotoko and Hearts who pay their players considerably well, how much do other clubs pay? They pay peanuts and we talking about pay cuts? We haven’t considered pay cuts”
Meanwhile, it is understood that the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) is planning a meeting to discuss with clubs on whether pay cuts for players should be considered in these difficult times or not.
