Poorly paid: ‘Good structures key in solving player salaries – Tony Baffoe

Ex Black Stars defender and the current General Secretary of the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG), Tony Baffoe has revealed that good structures at the domestic front will be a key factor in solving the poor player remuneration in the First Capital Plus Bank Premier League.

According to reports, Premier League players are paid as low as GHC 80 and 100 respectively without SSNIT contribution.

However, most of the players in the Premier League have gone many seasons without salaries.

But according to Tony Baffoe this issue will be dealt with if the local clubs have the proper structures and marketing acumen.

‘I believe in structures, I believe in contributing to having very good structures.

‘We have long been in talks and have given a proposal to the GFA; those talks about standard contracts, pension schemes, insurance packages and minimum salary caps,’ he told Allsports Editor, Godfred Akoto Boafo.

‘I can come out and tell you that a player should not earn less than $200, this is a figure that I am thinking of but I always have to consider the situation of majority of the clubs here,’ he opined.
