Medeama SC captain, Joseph Tetteh-zutah has pleaded with the hierarchy of the Ghana Football Association to consider establishing a minimum wage for players in the domestic league.
This follows after the association’s Congress held on September 1, 2020, approved monthly allowances for the federation’s President, vice-president and the Executive Council members.
The GFA Chief will take home 12, 000 Ghana Cedis while the vice will receive 7,000 Ghana cedis. Other Executive Council members will be paid 4,000 Ghana Cedis every month.
Tetteh-Zutah believes that ‘Creating Wealth ‘ as espoused by the GFA should be extended to the players who ply their trade in Ghana.
According to him, if the players are paid well, the mass exodus of local players will be curbed.
“We are happy Football is coming back but as players, we have been advocating for a standard minimum wage that will see players paid well and reduce player exodus for some time now, ” he told Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM.
“This is a major concern to us, we know they have come to work to improve Ghana Football so they should take a look at this.
“Creating wealth as espoused by the GFA President is not for the players only but across the board, administrators etc. Players and club owners will be comfortable.
“We hope to hear positive news, ” he added.
