Dreams FC goal poacher, Abel Manomey has backed the National Democratic Congress [NDC] decision to pay local players Ghc1,500 should they win power.

The party through it manifesto has indicated that they will establish a sports fund through which clubs can apply for fund to support their players.

With many questioning the sustainability, Manomey says the idea of the state sponsoring football clubs is a welcome initiative that can help grow the sport in the country.

“It is doable. I think governments are beginning to see that football is not just a passion but also a job,” he said on Citi TV’s Football Made in Ghana.

“When NDC comes into power, they can do it, because I can tell you on authority that majority of Ghana Premier League players are receiving salaries in the region of GHS 80 to GHS 250.

"So I think it is a good plan, only if they follow through on their promise if they win,” he concluded.
