Although he loved his girlfriend, he could not fault her for leaving him at the time she did.
“I don't fault her,” he continued. “Even though it's our profession and we believe in our talent, we don't get the needed recognition. It is not reflected in our salaries.”
The goalkeeper revealed some players in the Ghana Premier League receive as less as GHC300, which is equivalent to $26.13.
Bawa Martey started his career at Proud United before joining Elmina Sharks and later Dreams FC, as reported by transfermarkt.
