Ghana FA Presidential candidate, Mr. George Kwasi Afriyie has mentioned in his manifesto that he would want Ghana Premier League players to be paid not be paid less than $1000.
According to the Okyeman Planners bankroller, his administration will make the local football very attractive in a bid to reduce players exodus and retain the budding footballers in the local scene.
A snippet of his manifesto spotted by SportsworldGhana.com reads “To lead the Football Association to find ways and means of retaining football stars in the country to curb or minimize the exodus of Ghana’s budding footballers; a phenomenon that has sought to impoverish our league system for a considerable period of time.”
“This can be achieved by vigorously pursued sponsorship which could lead to a minimum wage of $1000 for each player in the premiership”
Afriyie who was a member of the 2019 African Cup of Nations organizing committee, will be launching his campaign for the upcoming Ghana FA elections on 3rd October,2019 in Sunyani.
