Ghanaian Goalkeeper Eric Ofori Antwi has stated his willingness to play anywhere in the world if the offer is better.
The former Medeama SC goalkeeper has decided to leave Legon Cities due to unpaid salaries. Antwi, a former Ghana U-20 player, claims that the Accra-based club have not paid him in three months and that he is also owed a signing-on fee.
“Due to an unpaid signing-on fee and three months of salary arrears, I have instructed my management to notify Legon Cities of my intention to terminate the contract. I don’t want to go back to the club,” Antwi told Onua Sports.
Alawa, as he is affectionately known, joined Legon Cities in September 2021 and helped the club finish in the top half of the Ghana Premier League season that just ended.
The former Asante Kotoko goalkeeper was desperate to join Hearts of Oak, but the Phobians had no plans to bring him in.
He accepted Legon Cities’ offer, but now he appears to be kicking himself. He revealed, “My mother called me for money at some point during the season, but I was unable to provide it due to unpaid salaries. Mum then advised me to leave Legon Cities.”
“If I get a better offer in Iraq or Pakistan, I’ll go there. Football is a business.”
“I propose that the minimum salary for players in Division Two be GHC1,500, GHC3,000 for Division One, and GHC5,000 in the Ghana Premier League,” he added.
