Ghana Premier League legend, Charles Assampong Taylor believes local players have every right to seek greener pastures abroad if they are not being treated well by their clubs.

According to the former Hearts of Oak ace, there is no need to play here and retire as a pauper when the players can move elsewhere to better their lives.

Taylor was reacting to the poor remuneration of footballers in the Ghana Premier League, which usually leads to a mass exodus.

“If after training, the top player in a Premier League club has to walk by the roadside while the Team Manager of that team drives past him, how do you convince this player from leaving when he has a deal in Tunisia?” he told Accra Angel FM.

“You’re a player in Ghana with your name on radio, TV and in the newspapers. Everyone knows you’re a top player but when your mum is sick, you can’t help, your wife needs money, you don’t have, so what’s the use of staying here when another country can change your life,” he added.

The likes of Kwame Opoku, Augustine Boakye, among other players left the local league after less than 8 matches played into last season.
