Asha Gold will activate 20% pay cut on their players and technical team following a successful agreement by both parties.
According to assistant coach Thomas Duah, the pay cut will help the club’s finances especially in these difficult times of COVID 19.
“We all know the situation at hand because of this COVID-19, the league is suspended and there’s no football resulting in this pay-cut issue. We are unaware of when this disease is ending making way for the return of football,” Thomas Duah told Kumasi FM.
“Generally, it is something that cannot be forced on the players. If the management of the clubs is able to conclude mutually, that’s fine but with Ashantigold players and technical team, we have accepted a 20% pay cut. We have to be lenient and help the club president in this difficult time.
“I have spoken to the leadership of the playing body and they have accepted it. It is something that is not normal, players play at least eight matches in a month at times but salaries are not increased. We are only considering them in these difficult times,” he concluded.
Ash Gold becomes the first league club in the country to agree to a pay cut.
