Accra Hearts of Oak newfound striker – Abednego Tetteh has disclosed that Ghanaian players would stay and play their hearts out in the local league if club owners were able to meet their financial considerations.
Speaking to Papa Myxtro on Adom TV last Saturday, the former Al Hilal and Real Kashmir central striker said life is not easy out there, but they have to go and sacrifice because there’s huge financial disparity between playing in the Ghanaian League and some of the other leagues in Africa.
“I can tell you that no Ghanaian player will travel outside to go and play football if our teams here could pay us just $1000 a month because it’s not easy out there but we have no choice.”
Abednego Tetteh, who helped Bechem United to win the MTN-FA Cup trophy in 2017 further reiterated that the standard of the Ghana Premier League is not competitive as compared to some other leagues in Africa because of the financial power of the teams in those countries.
“The truth is that some of the teams over there have huge financial backing so they are able to attract players from across the globe including Brazilians.
Abednego Tetteh, however, claim that he has been supporting Hearts of Oak from his boyhood days, so joining the Phobia family is a dream come true for him and that he’s going to put his all on the field of play to make sure that the former continental club masters come back to its glory days.
