Former Hearts of Oak forward Reuben Senyo has disclosed receiving a monthly salary of 150 Ghana cedis during his time at the Ghanaian giants.
According to Senyo, the amount, although small didn’t bother him because it was big deal for him playing for Hearts of Oak and being a fans favourite.
“During my stints with Hearts of Oak, I was not looking at salary because I had a plan of moving forward with my career. The salary was not bad and it was out of the little I was earning that I built a chamber and a hall self-contained”
“I’m not poor because I have my own house. For now, truth be told, current players are earning better salaries as compared to our time. If I were still playing, I would have done much greater things with my salary”
“I was pocketing GH¢150 as salary while in the books of Hearts of Oak” he added.
He played for the Phobians in the early 2000s and won two Ghana Premier League titles.
