Previous Vice Chairman of the Ghana Soccer Association, Joseph Ade Coker has questioned the rationale behind the Black Stars coach acquiring additional income than the President of Ghana.
The outspoken Better Accra Regional Chairman of the opposition Countrywide Democratic Congress (NDC) who was talking on Angel Fm’s Floodlight Sports activities with Saddick Adams, believes it does not make economic perception to pay back the Black Stars coach, C. K Akunnor, additional than President Nana Akufo-Addo, insisting, the place does not get any benefit from football.
About the earlier several weeks, the salary of C.K Akunnor has grow to be a big a headline in the media area, soon after the Minister of Youth and Sports, Isaac Asiamah publicly called on the gaffer to take a pay back slash on his 9 thirty day period unpaid wage.
The previous Kotoko coach was appointed as the new head coach following the GFA parted ways with Kwasi Appiah.
Mr Ade Coker is of the see that paying out massive total of money on a neighborhood coach with a “white man’s certificate” is an complete mismatch and not advantageous to Ghanaians in any way.
According to him, “what does the nation get from Black Stars? If the Black Stars are profitable trophies with a globe course mentor and we are paying out substantial sums of income that is fantastic. But if it is a community coach with a certificate…and we’re spending such massive quantities when they cannot place up any better opposition in opposition to their foreign counterparts, then we will have to definitely appear at the payment construction of the Black Stars mentor, especially with all the hardships struggling with our financial state. Due to the fact upon all the cash the region invests in football, there is definitely no benefit.”
Income composition and bare minimum wage have been a enormous point of dialogue among the polititicians likely into the 2020 polls.
But Mr Ade Coker disagrees that a nearby soccer coach takes far more renumeration than the President of Ghana.
“If the President of Ghana is getting 20,000 Ghana Cedis at the close of the month, why must a nearby Ghanaian mentor with the white man’s certificate obtain 25,000 pounds. It is, consequently, irrational for the Black Stars coach to acquire far more income than the President of Ghana. In conditions of trophies what is there to present? It is as a result a mismatch. I would suggest that our resources are unfold across the sporting field…which we can gain from.
“We really do not have the players with international excellent to have earned the dollars we are paying out them. The income really should be utilized to build the sports at the reduced stage.”
He, however, advised stakeholders to produce a wage technique for the coaches centered on the economic system of the state.
“We must appear at the amount of the economic climate and composition a income method for the coaches soon after all, the coaches are regional coaches with international certificates. If any worker attains a PhD from a overseas place and decides to operate right here in Ghana, he will be paid for every the wage structure listed here and not in accordance to what is paid outside”.
