Hearts of Oak acting general Manager Vincent Sowah Odotei says they pay an average of $300 to players at the Club.

Salaries of local based players have been in the news in recent times.

According to Odotei the highest paid player at the Club receives $500 monthly salary equivalent to GHC2000 whilst the lowest receive $300 which is equivalent to GHC 1,200.

“The only way we can let the players stay in the league is, we have to look at the whole football infrastructure from the GFA, from the way we put out our policies, how clubs will be managed because we are in a competitive world.

“In Hearts of Oak the highest paid player takes home a monthly salary of $500 and the average player in Hearts of Oak takes about $300 a month. We will get there but it will take some time.”
