Erstwhile Black Stars defender Joe Addo has revealed that legends Abedi Pele and Tony Yeboah never took their winning bonuses and per diems during their time with the national team.
Joe Addo revealed that the duo sacrificed and rather gave their winning bonus and per diems to their team mates.
“In my time at the national team, Abedi Pele and Tony Yeboah never took their winning bonuses and per diems. They always wanted their share to be distributed among the rest of the team”, he told Joy FM.
“They even gave us money on top and because of that we wanted to die for them on the pitch. They had families they could have given the money to but they gave it to us instead. We knew that we will get money from them even before the administrators pay us”, he added.
Joe Addo represented Ghana at multiple tournaments including the 1996 summer Olympics.
