Clubs calls on government for financial assistance is inappropriate – Lawyer Duah Adonteng


Former member of the Normalisation Committee for Ghana Football, Lawyer Dua Adonteng has described calls from clubs for support for government’s assistance as ‘inappropriate.’

The astute lawyer believes other measures like pay cut could help reduce the financial burdens brought on clubs by the coronavirus.

All football clubs in Ghana have been left inactive due to the outbreak of COVID-19 leaving clubs financially stricken.

“Clubs call on government for financial assistance is inappropriate,” Lawyer Duah Adonteng told Sikka Sports. “It will be ideal for pay cut to ease the financial burden that will entangle the clubs,” he added.

Last week General Manager of Techiman Eleven Wonders Takyi Arhin expressed the need for government to support clubs in these difficult times.

“After everything we had to take loans to pay our players. Now that football is back, we have coronavirus, even Pharmaceutical companies and GUTA are calling on government, aren’t we also Ghanaians to call on government?,” said Takyi Arhin. “So it’s fair to ask government for help.”

Other clubs have also joined calls for support including King Faisal Babies.
