Management of Asante Kotoko has assured their playing body and technical staff of full pay in the wake of the Coronavirus outbreak.
There has been talk of clubs cutting salaries of players to meet their financial obligations, but the management of Africa’s club of the century insist they have not made such plans and will continue to pay players their salaries until the pandemic is over.
Speaking on the matter, communication director of the club Kennedy Boakye Ansah told Fox FM in Kumasi that management will not be making any of such moves.
“I have always had the conviction that european Solutions can’t solve African problems , apart from Kotoko and Hearts who pay their players considerably well, how much do other clubs pay ,they pay peanuts and we talking about pay cuts. We haven’t considered pay cut”
There has been growing concerns as to how Ghanaian clubs will be able to raise funds to pay their salaries with no activities following the suspension of all football games in the country.
Some top European clubs have reached agreements with their players to cut their salaries, with many others forfeiting their salaries following the Coronavirus outbreak that has left the World of Sports virtually collapsed.
