Ghana's No. 1

Richmond Boakye-Yiadom advocates for minimum base salary for Ghana Premier League players

Published on: 20 January 2021


Former Red Star Belgrade striker, Richmond Boakye-Yiadom, believes there should be a minimum base salary for players who play in the Ghana Premier League (GPL).

Most Ghanaian players are interested in plying their trade oversees due to the small remunerations they earn playing on the domestic front.

According to the 27-year-old prolific striker, it is very disappointing for players who worked soo hard to earn close to nothing despite their efforts.

“I don’t mean to offend any team owner with what I am about to say but I think if a player wakes up every day to train, fight and wants to do his best to take a club to the highest level we all can help that person”.

“Ghana is one of the countries capable of developing players to the highest level but excuse my language if a player is receiving GHC 500 or 1000 and that person has rent to pay and has a girlfriend or wife with kids its a difficult situation to combine.

“If there can be sponsors that can help to introduce a base salary to cushion them to carry on their job without stressing the Ghanaian league will be one of the best,” he stated on The Tracker on Citi Tv.

The former Red Star Belgrade forward is a product of Ghana Premier League side Bechem United.
