Captain Aduana Stars, Yahaya Mohammed has lashed out at the payment plans adopted by the Normalization Committee to be used to pay players of clubs that will be participating in the proposed Novelty Competition.
The NC after a meeting with club owners of the Premier and Division One Leagues disclosed that they will be paying players’ winning bonuses directly into their account.
The decision which has not been acceptable by many of the clubs owners seems to also be of concern to some players who believe the payment plans by the NC is an injustice to the clubs owners who have time and time again invested and spent a lot of monies in running their clubs.
One of such players is Captain for Aduana Stars Yahaya Mohammed who in an interview with Asempa FM earlier today questioned why the NC will take such a decision. He opines that such a decision doesn’t sound right and has poured out his disagreement with the NC’s decision.
“The only thing they [the normalization committee] can do to help us the players is by giving the monies to the team owners. The owner formed his team and he knows how he struggles to keep the team in shape; is he [Dr. Kofi Amoah] the one who formed the team for the owner?” Yahaya Mohammed said whiles pushing for club owners to be made to pay the players.
He insists that if the President of the NC, Dr. Kofi Amoah was a club owner and such a decision was taken by someone else, there is no way he would have liked it. Therefore they should revise and avert the decision.
The Special competition will commence on January 26 and it is expected that it will be officially launched tomorrow. In all, 64 clubs comprising 16 premier league clubs and 48 Division One Clubs will compete for the Ultimate prize.
