Oti Akenteng urges GFA to introduce minimum wage of players in GHPL
The former Accra Hearts of Oak coach has suggested a minimum income to Ghanaian football players partaking in the Ghana Premiere League.
Technical Director of the Ghana Football Association, Oti Akenteng has called on the FA to introduce a minimum wage for players plying their trade in the Ghana Premier League.
“It is sad that players in our country receive low salaries. I think there should be a minimum wage cut for all the players” he said.
The former Accra Hearts of Oak coach has implored clubs in the country to seek for sponsorship which would aid them to participate well in the Ghana Premier League.
“The clubs must seek for sponsorship to cater for that. Some of the clubs are doing their best but it’s sad some players are unable to eat a balanced diet because they can’t afford it, which eventually affect results” he told Kumasi FM.
According to him, proper dieting and the nature of boots used by players affect the performance of clubs but has claimed that the said factors are overlooked as coaches are sacked when results are bad.
“Proper dieting, nature of boots players uses, ball type and pitch, affect performance but these factors are overlooked and coaches are sacrificed when results are bad” he added.
