Published on: 17 May 2020

Ghana Premier League side WAFA have denied recent comment made one of their players Konadu Yiadom on "players earn only bonuses and not salaries".

Yiadom, in an interview with Kumasi-based Angel FM, disclosed that players at the club only receive match winning bonuses without salaries.

However, WAFA has released a statment to refute such comments made by the 20-year-old.

"Probably one of our players was misquoted in circling online publications."

''#WAFAcademySC has more than 30 players under contract and for many years salaries are always paid before the end of every month," the club's social media handle reads.

''Also, bonuses are paid after every game.

''Besides that, players and staff get free formal education, accommodation, food and medication.''

Yiadom has made 14 appearances for WAFA in the suspended 2019/20 Ghana Premier League.

The top-flight remains on hold until at least June amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Premier League was at its match week 15 stage when it came to a halt, with Aduana Stars leading the table with 28 points.
