Accra Hearts of Oak are in discussions with their players to accept pay cuts because of the coronavirus pandemic which has affected financial inflows of the club.
According to the Phobian’s supporters’ chairman, Elvis Hermann-Hesse, the club is in discussion with the players to take salary cuts to help the club stay afloat.
Ghana football has been suspended since March 15 following the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in the country.
“Personally, I support the pay cut because to run a club in this country is not easy. It’s only when we play against Aduana, Asante Kotoko, AshGold, Liberty that we generate revenue. Sometimes, we don’t earn anything, he told Happy FM.
“The players are not working and the services that they have to render for the club to pay them full salary is not there. If the players can agree to a pay cut it wont be a bad thing”.
“Management is engaging the players on it. I have had the opportunity to discuss with the players to accept this which I know will be temporal”, he added.
