We’ll slash our salaries on mutual consent – Aduana Stars skipper reveals

General captain of Aduana Stars Emmanuel Akuoko has joined the debate as to whether or not local players should take a pay cut amid the coronavirus crisis.

There have been calls for players plying their trade in the country to emulate the European stars as they take salary cut to reduce financial burdens on their clubs.

These calls have generated a lot of issues whether or not salary of players must be slashed in the wake of the disease due to lack of football activities.

Addressing the issue, Emmanuel Akuoko said he and his colleagues could only accept pay cut if both parties (Players and management) reach a consensus.

“Slashing down our salaries will depend on how management will discuss with us.

“We know things are tough now and so if management discuss and explain things to us we will accept pay cut because we all want the best for the country,” he told Peace FM.

“It is our will to make donations in this difficult times but our financial background is not all that strong,” he added.

The Coronavirus outbreak has forced all football activities to be suspended all over the world.
