Former Asante Kotoko striker, Eric Kwabena Bekoe, claims local-based players are unable to live a better life because they are poorly paid by club administrators in Ghana.
The ex- Ghana International is blaming club administrators in the Ghanaian top-flight league for being greedy following the paltry salary they offer the main actors on the field.
“Even this salary you talking about management member is taking more than a player, how? he asked.
”After receiving the money they want results too. When a player who has played outside before want to relaunch his career in the Ghana Premier League immediately, they will say that player will destroy the local players we have. The reason is because they do not want you to take home more than them.” He told Angel Sports
“These players carry the family burden on them and looking at the salary they take home, they continue to date without the intention of marrying. When they get the chance to play for Kotoko and Hearts where they are open to playing outside the country, before they think of those things.
“It is when players play for Kotoko and Hearts that they are able to remember those who contributed to their career to that level before they look back to appreciate them. Is it not that players do not show gratitude but because they are paid poorly.” He added
