Medeama Sporting Club midfielder, Kwasi Donsu, has advised Ghana Premier clubs to lay out salary structure which will help curb the rampant player exodus in the league.
In a recent report released by CEIS, Ghana is the second exporter of footballers in Africa which supports the fact that local players move out for greener pastures due to low wages.
Kwasi Donsu in an interview with Koforidua based Bryt FM, expressed his grievances of the alarming issue.
“Players travel outside because of money. It is worrying to see local players traveling outside to join clubs below standards. Truth to be told, the Ghana league can be rated ahead of most of the leagues players move to join but it is all about money.”
He further stated “If local players receive better salaries they wouldn’t bother themselves to travel because most of them travel to seek for greener pastures. So I will plead with the clubs to be keen about player salaries in the country”
“It will be prudent for Premier League players to receive a minimum salary of $1000 to curb player exodus,” he added.
