Ghana's No. 1

Georgia-based Samuel Inkoom calls on Ghana Premier League players roll take pay cut amid covid-19 outbreak

Published on: 05 April 2020

Ghana defender Samuel Inkoom has urged players of the Ghana Premier League to take pay cuts to ease economic pressure on clubs amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Players are under pressure to take pay cuts as the Ghana Premier League is on hold due to the coronavirus crisis.

According to Inkoom, who plays for Georgian outfit FC Samtredia, local players should bear some of the economic responsibility by taking pay cuts.

"I think any sensible player will accept a pay cut during this period of Covid-19. In Europe many clubs have taken same decision to reduce salary of players in order to cushion the club financially,” Inkoom told Fox FM.

“I know in Ghana players don't take much. I know that as a fact but there is a saying that there is more blessing in giving than in receiving. For instance my salary at Kotoko was 150 cedis those days but I managed it.”
