Azam FC forward, Yahaya Mohammed has subtly jabbed the Ghana Premier League (GPL), insisting his monthly salary at the Tanzanian club can purchase a player in Ghana.

Yahaya Mohammed left Aduana Stars to join Azam FC last season, after a fruitful campaign with the Ogya lads where he scored 15 goals to propel them to second place.

However, he has been criticized by certain quarters, who believe he joined the Tanzanian club just for the money.

The 29-year-old however believes he made the right choice, highlighting the importance of money in modern day football.

He further aimed a subtle dig at the Ghanaian league, suggesting that his current salary could actually purchase a player in the GPL.

"I can use my one month salary here in Tanzania to recruit a premier league player in Ghana,'' Yahaya said in an interview with Silver FM.

"If a club in Ghana can buy a player at a price of 10,000 GH cedis to 20,000 GH cedis with the highest being 40,000GH cedis; what shows that I can't do same with my current financial status in Tanzania?

"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.”

Yahaya Mohammed once played for Kotoko in the Ghanaian topflight, before having notable stints with Aduana Stars and now Azam FC.
