Former Kumasi Asante Kotoko footballer, Sarfo Gyamfi aka ‘Black President’ has revealed that each player of the team would receive $5,000.00 for winning the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League.
Asante Kotoko won the Ghana Premier League title for a record 26th time following their 1-1 draw with Ashanti Gold at Obuasi Len Clay stadium on Thursday.
The Porcupine Warriors clinched the title with three matches left to play as they sit at the summit of the league table with 60 points, 10 points above second-placed Bechem United after 31 matches played.
Speaking in an interview on Hot 93.9FM’s Focal Sports’ show, Sarfo Gyamfi who was answering a question in line with how much he believes the players should be given for winning the league said:
“For me, the players did so well … I think the board promised the players five thousand dollars each (5,000 dollars).
“I am reliably informed that the board are preparing to reward the players as they promised,” he stated.
The legendary former Kotoko Midfielder advised that “The board has to be maintained… they’re doing so well, no need to change them.”
On records, Sarfo Gyamfi was part of the Black Stars’ squad that participated in the 1992 Africa Cup of Nations where Ghana reached the final.
