Godfred Saka endorses NC's decision to pay salaries of players

Karela United FC defender Godfred Saka believes GFA Normalization Committee will miss the roadmap should they allow club administrators to players salaries.

The Normalization Committee ahead of their Special Football League competition confirmed they will pay the players personally rather than club owners taking in charge of player salaries.

However, there have been a banter from football administrators not to consider the proposal.

Godfred Saka, who plies with the Nzema based outfit has disclosed that he will be excited should Normalization Committee stick to such approach following the hunger and suffering of the local players.

"I really support the idea that the Normalisation Committee will pay the players directly because we had a meeting with them(NC) and it is upon our request at our meeting with the Normalisation Committee that they(NC) are doing that,” he said.

"We[Players]will be very happy if the Normalisation Committee will stick to their words by paying players directly because we the players are really suffering in the hands of our employers"

The experienced defender told Kumasi based Ashh FM that the committee might miss their roadmap if they change the course. “The Normalisation Committee might not know what they are doing if they give the salaries to the club administrators to pay the players".

The 30-year-old joined Karela United in January last year after parting ways with Premier League champions Aduana Stars.
