Mohammed Muntari Tagoe, the ex-Medeama goalkeeper, disclosed that he was paid 200 cedis ($25) a month.
Onua TV’s Alfred Takyi Mensah interviewed him on Wednesday and shared this information. In the words of Tagoe, who is now playing for Ethiopia. During his time in Ghana, it was the “lowest pay he was paid”.
“I was a new mother at the time.” As Tagoe himself stated, “it wasn’t easy for me.
First-year student Tagoe said he was given the money. Prior to joining Medeama, he had previously played for Sporting Mirren in the Premier League, where they finished seventh.
A new television and a $100 bonus for defeating Asante Kotoko were part of Mirren’s compensation package, according to Tagoe.
He stated that his salary went up as he became a more integral part of the team.
Tagoe worked at Medeama for six years. The two FA Cups he won were among his three honors. He served as captain of the squad from 2014 to 2016.
Players in Ghana are being forced to leave the country because of the poor earnings they get, according to Tagoe. The league’s success is hampered by the departure of the greatest players after only one season.
Tagoe called for a monthly wage for players of 1,500 Ghana cedis as a minimum.
“I am in favor of players quitting for higher wages. It’s not uncommon for Ghana Premier League players to live in squalid conditions. There are a lot of gamers that have vehicles to travel about. He put the matter to the test.
Since the beginning of 2019, Tagoe has been playing in Ethiopia, and he says the circumstances have much improved.
He joined Hawassa FC from Hossana after leaving Asante Kotoko for Jimma Aba Jifar.
