Players In Ghana Have To Charge Based On The Economy – Yahaya Mohammed
Aduana Stars' top marksman, Yahaya Mohammed has shared that he is aware of the financial difficulties clubs go through in the country while stressing that players have to charge their salaries by taking the economy into consideration.
According to the former Asante Kotoko striker, it will be unfair for him to charge a club in the country $5,000 when he knows clubs in this part of the world do not have the financial power to meet those demands.
“If I ask Aduana to pay me Ghc2000 a month and $5,000 signing on fee then I am not been fair to Aduana because of the economy here in Ghana”, the attacker told Happy FM in an interview.
He continued, “If you a player here in Ghana, you have to charge based on the economy. You have to look at the economy and charge the club”.
Yahaya Mohammed further stressed that due to the economic situation, it is hard for a player to become rich when he plays in the local league. According to him, it is the reason players need to put in extra effort to earn a move abroad and make money.
“You must kill yourself and play because the offers will come and that is where you will make a lot of money”, the striker observed.
Yahaya Mohammed, 32, has 11 goals in the suspended Ghana Premier League after matchday 15 and has set his sight on picking up the golden boot award.
