Former Chairman of the Premier League Board Ashford Tettey-Oku says salary cut is not an option for clubs in the country.

The former Administrative Manager of Hearts of Oak, has warned clubs there could be consequences.

Tettey-Oku, who is CEO of CLOSEmarking CONSULT, argues  that Covid-19 cannot be used an excuse to punish players.

''It is something people are taking for granted. I have dealt with a case before in Egypt where Zamalek used the riots in Egypt as a case in refusing to honour their financial obligations,'' he told Kumasi FM

''During their plea at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) of using the riots as an excuse, the reply was that it was not taken care in the contract.

''It is for the management and administrators of our clubs to learn. When contracts are signed, you must look at force majeure situations.

''If you do not and something happens why should the player suffer?''
