Nana Yaw Amponsah, the CEO of Asante Kotoko, has criticized the FA and authorities for how the betway Ghana Premier League is run.
He claims that Franck Mbella Etouga, a former Asante Kotoko attacker now playing for Al Masry in Egypt, earns the same amount each month as the Ghana Premier League champion.
The football official was responding to remarks made by Kurt Okraku, President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), regarding the league’s low support.
Currently, the champions of the Ghana Premier League earn GHc25,000, while the runner-up gets GHc15,000.
Nonetheless, league attendance has been incredibly low this year, with Hearts of Oak vs. Asante Kotoko’s Super Clash last Sunday drawing a surprisingly small crowd.
The GFA president recently asserted that Hearts and Kotoko should be given more responsibility for drawing spectators to the stadium. He insisted that the fans are the teams’ property, not the GFA’s.
However, in response to this, Nana Yaw Amponsah disproved such allegations and asserted that even the most powerful clubs in the nation “can’t build heaven in hell.”
“Mbella’s 1month Salary = GPL Champion Prize Money,” the Kotoko CEO tweeted.
