LISTEN APR 5, 2020

Ghana defender, Samuel Inkoom has shockingly revealed that he was paid GGH¢150.00 as monthly salary during his playing days at Asante Kotoko.

Inkoom helped the Porcupine Warriors to win the 2007/08 Ghana Premier League season before he left for greener pastures at Basel in Switzerland.

Inkoom’s quest to move away from Kotoko resulted in a tussle between his family and the management of the Porcupine Warriors, because the Kumasi giants wanted to keep him at the club, but his family enticed by the offer for him pushed for his transfer.

“I was playing for Kotoko with passion. I cherished the team and I was a supporter before joining the team”, Inkoom told Fox FM.

“I was receiving the lowest salary at Kotoko despite my extraordinary form for the team. Frankly, I was receiving GH¢150.00 as monthly salary but I was not perturbed because I was not looking at the money but the future

Currently, Samuel Inkoom plays for Bulgarian side Dunav Ruse.

The 30-year-old was part of the Black Satellites team that won the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup and also represented Ghana in the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cups
