Ghana Premier League side Dreams FC administrative manager Shardow has lauded the Normalisation Committee for the upcoming special competition but he is not enthused by their decision to directly pay players.
The Normalisation Committee announced the special competition in December last year after a lot of outcry from football stakeholders due to the absence of active football in the country.
The Committee met with 16 Premier League and 48 Division One League clubs on Tuesday to discuss the format of the proposed special competition.
In an interview with Ohene Bampoe-Brenya on Happy FM‘s Anopa Bosuo Sports, Mr. Shardow was full of praise for the Normalisation Committee for their initiative in bringing the special competition which he believes will revive football in the country.
“It’s a very laudable idea from the Normalisation Committee to bring in the special competition. This will help keep the players in shape and help in the reforms process,” Shardow said on Happy FM.
He was however not excited with the decision of the Normalisation Committee to pay players who will be engaged in the competition directly.
“Paying players directly is not sustainable because the Normalization Committee does not know the contractual agreement clubs have with their players,” he opined.
The competition is expected to be played between January 26 and April 21, 2018.
