Aduana Stars marksman Yahaya Mohammed says clubs should consider the input of players before pay cut.

The 32-year-old speaking to Kumasi-based Sikka FM said clubs need to dialogue with their players if they intend slashing down the salaries of their employees.

He adds that he will be the first person to allow his salary to be slashed if the Dormaa-based team’s management decide to have a dialogue with him.

“Issues of pay cut should be a consensus between players and Management of clubs,” Yahaya Mohammed told Sikka Sports. “I will be the first person to accept pay-cut at Aduana Stars,” he added.

The issues of pay cut have generated a lot of talk in the country since the league was suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana have also waded into the debate.

According to the PFAG, who seek the welfare of players in the country, clubs need to go to the round table with their players before slashing their pay amid the Covid-19 crisis.

A statement read: “Our attention has been drawn to reports from some of our members and news in the media of clubs pushing to implement pay cuts without dialogue with the players.”

“Being minded by the present situation – COVID 19 challenges, the PFAG believes the best way forward is an open dialogue and concensus building approach. The PFAG would be grateful this matter can be resolved with the input of the players.

“Such unilateral decisions do not augur well for the future of our game.”
