General Manager of the Accra Great Olympics, Oloboi Commodore has encouraged club owners to engage their players on how to deal with the financial difficulties the CoronaVirus outbreak has brought.
The Covid-19 pandemic continues to takes it toll on the world with football just like other sectors, badly affected.
In Ghana, all football activies have been suspended by the GFA following a directive from government. This has left clubs in dire financial conditions as revenue generation has been hardly hit.
As ideas pour in on how to mitigate the impact, the idea of a salary cut has been suggested. This has been an initiative commonly used abroad by football clubs to beat down expenses and stay financially healthy.
In Ghana, opinions are sharply divided on this and Oloboi Commodore is the latest to wade into this debate.
The experienced football administrator wants clubs to thoroughly discuss with their players on how to deal with the situation.
“Already some Ghanaian clubs find it difficult to pay their players so I think in this pandemic era, club owners should discuss with their players on a possible pay cut,” he told Kumasi based OTEC FM.
“It’s better we call the players and inform them because even some European clubs have adopted to that” he added.
