Aduana Stars skipper Yahaya Mohammed unconvinced by NC player payment style

Published on: 11 January 2019

Aduana Stars captain Yahaya Mohammed is unhappy with the payment style proposed by the Normalisation Committee ahead of the Special Competition this month. 

The Normalisation Committee revealed at their meeting with club administrators, players would be paid directly without the involvement of their teams.

But Mahammed, one of the most experienced players on the local scene does not think it is the right approach and feels club owners must be in the known about player entitlements.

“The only thing they [the normalization committee] can do to help we the players is by giving the monies to the team owners," he spoke to Asempa FM

“If he [Dr. Kofi Amoah] has been an owner of a team for years and this is being done to him, he will see how it feels.” He added.

The Special Competition will begin on January 26th, with 64 clubs set to participate.

Sixteen Premier League clubs and forty-eight lower division teams will be involved in the competition.

This will be the first tournament to be played in the country since the revelations of the Anas documentary dubbed the Number 12 was shown.
