Buying a player plying trade in the Ghanaian elite division is something not above my reach, claims Azam FC frontman Yahaya Mohammed.
The 28-year-old former Kotoko attacker, who is now well-off in the east African country, believes his current financial status as a professional footballer is well enough to aid him recruit a top-notch star in the Ghana Premier League.
''I can use my one month salary here in Tanzania to recruit a premier league player in Ghana,'' Yahaya told Kumasi-based Silver FM
''If a club in Ghana can buy a player at a price of 10,000 GH cedis to 20,000 GH cedis with the highest being 40,000GH cedis; what shows that I can't do same with my current financial status in Tanzania?,'' he quizzed.
''So I'm saying this without mincing a word in my submission that I can recruit one player in Ghana with my one month salary,'' he bragged.
He continued: '' In fact, the working condition in Tanzania is very good as a footballer. The people have invested well into the league. The players are somehow well-off as their salaries are substantial. There's no doubt that the talent in Ghana can't be compare to that of Tanzania, but the truth is; football authorities here have pumped in a lot of money in the league which has made it attractive to the comfort of playing body,'' he reckons.
Yahaya Mohammed penned a two-year contract with Azam FC from Ghanaian giants Aduana Stars last year.
