Ghanaian actress Yvonne Okoro has implored the football Normalization Committee to ensure that players are paid well when football resumes in Ghana.
Players from the local scene have always lamented over the poor wages they receive from their respective clubs.
In an interview on Asempa FM’s LadiesTime show, the award-winning actress noted that: “The Normalization Committee should ensure that players are paid well,” she noted.
“Since the Committee has been tasked to fix Ghana Football, I entreat the members to also pay attention to the issue and fix that as well,” the actress added.
The actress further expressed that contracts of players must be reviewed. She stated that once players are well remunerated, it would help them to develop skillfully which will make the respective leagues attractive.
The Normalization Committee, whose mandate is expected to expire on March 31, 2019, will also act as an electoral committee whose decisions are final and binding, although its members will not be eligible for any of the open positions in the upcoming GFA elections under any circumstance.
