Minister Youth and Sports Isaac Asiamah has said that CK Akonnor’s salary will be slashed due to the economic difficulties as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking on Adom TV’s fire for fire show, he said, “The Sports Ministry and the Ghana Football Association are negotiating that we reduce his salary during these difficult times.

“I know he [CK Akonnor] will agree because we are not in normal times, I will not lie. The truth is that we cannot pay CK Akonnor’s full salary in these difficult times,” he added.
