Chairman of the Ghana Football Association's Normalisation Committee, Dr. Kofi Amoah has disclosed that the decision to pay players of the special competition directly was borne out of the meeting with captains of the various clubs.

Opinions have been divided since the NC revealed the players will be paid directly following the meeting with club administrators on Tuesday.

Some of the Premier League clubs are unconvinced by the idea and look to withdraw from the stop-gap competition.

However, Dr. Amoah insists footballers who are the main actors of the game must be given what they deserve hence the direct payment of their entitlements to their accounts.

“We’ve listened to the players and all the concerns they raised about their salaries and issues relating to it," Dr. Amoah disclosed on Asempa FM.

He added: "The players are the main actors of the game and we must do things to demonstrate that the players deserve what they must get. What is due to the clubs will go to them and what is due to the players will go to them. The game is for the players.'

''The player is important and the clubs themselves even agree. Revelations from our meeting with the players was very revealing and we must focus on player-club relationship.''
