Players will stay with minimum wage of $1,000 – Asante Kotoko

1 min read


Asante Kotoko captain, Felix Annan has revealed a suggestion that could be used to halt the player exodus in the West African country.

Ghana is one country in Africa that sees its footballers travelling abroad in huge numbers every year. Ghana has been ranked as the second exporter of footballers according to a survey conducted by CIES, which the report was released earlier this year.

Providing a suggestion to how the situation could be curbed, Annan – the Porcupine Warriors no.1 goalkeeper disclosed that indigenous players can only be kept in the top-flight for long if they are paid a minimum salary of $1,000.

“For me, the way Ghana has talent, if players are paid a minimum of $1000 then the players will be able to stay for about four to five years before leaving abroad.

“If the players also stay in the league for long, we will be able to compete with clubs from other countries that we have always wanted”, Annan said on Sports WhatsApp.
