Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan admits league delay has hit players' pockets

Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan says the delay start of the Premier League has hit their pockets.

The Ghanaian top-flight appears to be in a state of ‘coma’ following mounting legal tussle which has rocked the start of the season.

Dream’s FC promotion is being challenged at the Court of Arbitration for Sports while uncertainty hangs over Techiman City’s qualification.

Those two major issues have conspired against the start of the league.

And Kotoko shot-stopper Felix Annan is worried because the situation has aggravated their financial situation.

‘We are all worried about the delay of the Ghana League because we have been training for a long time without knowing the day the league will start,’ Annan told Starrfmonline.com.

‘It is very difficult moments but there is nothing we can do unless we all wait for league officials.

He added: ‘The delay has affected us financially because when we play matches and win, we receive bonus which can be used to help our family and friends. If the bonus is not coming then we have to depend on our salaries which won’t be enough for us and our family.

‘We are all pleading to the authorities, they should all come together to solve the problem quickly so we get back to play the League because that is our work we live on.’
