Coronavirus: Striker Yahaya Mohammed To Accept Pay Cut At Aduana Stars
LISTEN APR 7, 2020

Aduana Stars striker, Yahaya Mohammed says he will accept salary cut to ensure his club survives any financial crisis amid the CoronaVirus outbreak.

In Ghana, the discussion continues as to whether local clubs should take this up especially considering how much they pay their players.

The Professionals Football Association of Ghana (PFAG) and the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) have emphatically said they will stand against the player salary cut.

According to the former Asante Kotoko forward, it's unfair to use a one suit fits all approach for some adding that he will agree to a salary cut to allow Aduana Stars steer away from financial collapse.

“Per my relationship with Aduana Stars if management decide to reduce our salaries I will be the first person to accept it because I know the club do not have any sponsorship apart from Betway," he told Bryt FM.

“The club only depend on gate proceeds and in Ghana, apart from Kotoko and Hearts of Oak who have the highest fan base the rest struggle to even get much from gate proceeds. So we will do that to help the club owner for him know that he is dealing with reliable people who can help in a difficult time.

“What I know is that, (Cristiano) Ronaldo has his own sponsors including several Europeans players and so in this difficult times they can accept a pay cut, but in the case of local players there is no single sponsor and that makes it difficult to cope with a pay cut. So I will entreat Ghanaians to stop making comparison," he added.
