Professional footballers association of Ghana (PFAG) has kicked against the player pay cut which has been a major discourse in the country.
Since the outbreak of the Covid-19, majority of the club administrators have decided to meet their players and discuss pay cut due to financial difficulties. But PFAG sees it to be in bad taste if such decisions are agreed upon.
Mr. Augustine Arhinful, a board member of the association in his interview with Kumasi FM has given many instances where he thinks such decision should not even be discussed here.
According, the suspension of the league is just two weeks now so he does not see the dare effects that the football people are talking about.
“I think the pay cut has become an issue globally and I entreat journalists to delve into these issues before propagating the agenda here.
The suspension of the league is only two weeks old so there are no huge expenses these club administrators have incurred”. He said
Former Ghanaian international Arhinful used some clubs as a case study and resolved that players in the country can’t be compared to the Europeans.
He further stated that even if it should be done, it should not be compulsory.
“Let’s use Eleven wonders or King Faisal as a case study, what is the minimum salary in these clubs.
How much will these players earn after this deduction.
Ronaldo is earning over $30million a year and wouldn’t have any problem slashing his salary because of the situation.
These players in Europe are willingly doing it”.
“It shouldn’t be forced on our players.
It should genuinely come from their heart because we cannot equate what is happening in Europe to Ghana”. He added
Ghana football has been halted due to the outbreak of the corona virus.
