Former Aduana player, Yahaya Mohammed has condemned the state of the Ghana Premier League when he stated that he can now purchase a player in the Ghana Premier League with his one month salary in Tanzania.
The 28-year-old former Kotoko attacker, who is now well-off in the east African country, believes his current financial status as a professional footballer is well enough to recruit a top notch star in the Ghana Premier League.
Buying a player plying trade in the Ghanaian elite division is something not above my reach, claims Azam FC frontman Yahaya Mohammed.
”I can use my one month salary here in Tanzania to recruit a premier league player in Ghana,” Yahaya told Kumasi-based Silver FM
”If a club in Ghana can buy a player at a price of 10,000 Cedis to 20,000 Cedis with the highest being 40,000 Cedis; what shows that I can’t do same with my current financial status in Tanzania?,” he quizzed.
”So I’m saying this without mincing a word in my submission that I can recruit one player in Ghana with my one month salary,” he bragged.
He continued: ” In fact, the working condition in Tanzania is very good as a footballer. The people have invested well into the league. The players are somehow well-off as their salaries are substantial. There’s no doubt that the talent in Ghana can’t be compare to that of Tanzania, but the truth is; football authorities here have pumped in a lot of money in the league which has made it attractive to the comfort of playing body,” he reckons.
Yahaya Mohammed penned a two-year contract with Azam FC from Ghanaian giants Aduana Stars last year.
