President of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG), Kwabena Yeboah opposes the proposal or calls for player salary reduction in the Ghana Premier League.

As Coronavirus pandemic sweeps the globe, activities around the world including football has been at standstill.

The pandemic has had huge impact on the finances of most clubs. In bid to avoid further financial collapse, most clubs in Europe are implementing a salary cut.

In recent weeks, there have been calls that local players need to emulate European players and accept pay cut in order to help lessen the financial burden on clubs during this time of inactivity and turbulence.

Most people have opposed the claim, stressing that Ghanaian players are not paid enough to qualify for salary reduction.

Speaking in a program hosted by JoyNews and themed “Football after Coronavirus”, the veteran football commentator had his say about the topic.

“When a player is earning 100 dollars in Ghana, which pay cut are you talking about?”, he queried.

The program which was hosted by Gary Al-Smith and George Addo Jnr also had the likes of Peter Drury, Jon Champion and Robert Marawa on set.
