Aduana Stars midfielder Elvis Opoku says the exposé on corruption in Ghana football by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has affected Ghanaian players.
The offensive midfielder insists the investigative piece which put ice on the domestic league has brought untold hardship on players since they are unable to feed their families.
“We can’t blame the management of Aduana Stars for the difficulties. The Anas exposé brought all these and has put players in a difficult situation,” Opoku told Kumasi-based OTEC FM in relations to unpaid salaries.
“We will plead with the government and the NC to come to the aid of the players because we are in hard times.
“If it were to be an institution, they would have gone for demonstration but since we are players we can’t engage in that. As we speak, we have kids that we pay school fees, utility bills and others. It is a source of worry so the government should come to our aid because football is our full-time job,” he pleaded.
Opoku further stressed that a plan should be taken by those at the helm of affairs to ensure that the local game bounces back.
“The Government together with the NC should put proper measures in place for the comeback of Ghana football,” he added.
