Black Stars and former Red Star Belgrade striker Richmond Boakye – Yiadom says there should be a minimum base salary for individuals who play in the Ghana Premier League (GPL).
The 27-year old prolific striker who is a product of Bechem United expressed disappointment at how players are remunerated in Ghana despite their efforts.
“I don’t mean to offend any team owner with what I am saying but I think if a player wakes up every day to train, play and wants to do his best to take a club to the highest level we all can help that person.
“Ghana is one of the countries capable of developing players to the highest level but excuse my language if a player is receiving GH¢ 500 or GH¢1000 and that person has rent to pay and has a girlfriend or wife with kids, it’s a difficult situation to combine.
“If there can be sponsors that can help to introduce a base salary to cushion them to carry on their job without stressing the Ghanaian league, it will be one of the best,” he stated on Citi TV.
The former Red Star Belgrade forward is a product of Ghana Premier League side Bechem United.
