Asante Kotoko captain Felix Annan denies salary cut reports


Goalkeeper and Captain of Asante Kotoko, Felix Annan has denied media reports that players of the club have agreed to a salary cut.

Local media reports on Friday suggested that Kotoko players have agreed to a salary cut after deliberations with club officials.

The impact of the Coronavirus pandemic has led various clubs to adopt measures to avoid financial paralysis.

Across Europe, top clubs like Juventus, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have all had players reduce salaries to cope with the financial challenges.

In an interview with Atinka FM, the Black Stars goalkeeper said “in life I’ve always believed in proper communication, and in everything you do communication is very key”

“So if management engage the playing body in a meeting and we come into concensus, why not”

“This is not something that should not be forced on us”

“The clubs in Europe engaged their players in a meeting and agreed on that pay cut decision”

“We all understand the situation but we should all come into terms of what is best for all of us” he emphasized.
