Asante Kotoko CEO Reveals Salaries of Players, Dispels Salary Arrears Claims

Asante Kotoko CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah has responded to claims of salary arrears by revealing the salaries paid to players of the club. In a recent interview, he stated that none of the players are paid less than GHC 2,500 regardless of their previous salaries in other clubs. Amponsah believes that the salaries paid by the club are significantly higher than what the players earned in their previous clubs, hence, it would be unfair for any player to drop their commitment level due to delayed payment of salaries.

While he did not deny the existence of salary arrears, Amponsah stated that the delay in payment of salaries should not affect the team’s performance on the field. He stressed that even if the salaries are delayed, they are always guaranteed, but the same cannot be said about the results if players refuse to play well.

Amponsah further explained that even the lowest-paid player in the team, SHS student Rocky Dwamena, earns a monthly salary of GHC 2,500. He cited an example of a player who previously earned GHC 500 in a Division One team but is now being paid GHC 3,000 to GHC 4,000 at Kotoko.

For the most part, Amponsah’s revelation seeks to dispel rumors that salary arrears are affecting the team’s recent poor performances in the Ghana Premier League. Kotoko is currently winless in the last three games and is hoping to bounce back to winning ways with a trip to Dawu Park to play against Kotoku Royals on Sunday.

In a nutshell, Nana Yaw Amponsah believes that salary arrears should not be an excuse for the team’s poor performances. He believes that the salaries paid by the club are significantly higher than what the players earned in their previous clubs and should motivate them to play better. While he did not rule out the existence of salary arrears, he assured players that their salaries are always guaranteed, regardless of delays.
