Paying $40,000 as bonus to Black Stars players is justified - Kennedy Agyapong
Flagbearer aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has slammed Ghanaians for their constant criticisms of Black Stars players.
The Assin Central Member of Parliament said the amounts authorities pay the players are justified.
Kennedy Agyapong holds that the players by opting to play for the country take huge risks and must be rewarded financially for it.
“I don’t have a problem paying them to play for us. We have to encourage these stars to come home and play for us. Those in the foreign teams make so much money. Some make $40,000 a week, he comes here and the whole period they give him $40,000 and we are complaining.
“If this guy hurts himself and cannot play again, he loses $40,000 a week. I don’t mind paying whatever they deserve because it will motivate them to come home and serve. Ghanaians should stop complaining,” he said.
Black Stars captain, Andre ‘Dede’ Ayew has left Qatari club Al Sadd by mutual consent.
In a tweet by the club, it said: “Al-Sadd SC has reached an agreement with Andre Ayew to terminate his contract with the club by mutual consent”.
Andre Ayew joined the club as a free agent in 2021 after leaving English side Swansea City.
