Who is the highest paid player in Ghana Premier League in 2022?

As every year goes by, football on the African continent continues to evolve in every sphere.

The competitive level, style of play, the development of the players as well as their welfare have greatly improved from what they used to be.

And in Ghana, in contrast to what was the norm before, where the welfare of the players plying their trades in the league was a major problem for decades, owing to the inability of successive FAs to get sponsorship for the league, there seems to be a wind of change right now.

It would be recalled that for three years, the league was unable to attract sponsors but fortunately, the current Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku-led FA has been able to poach a betting company to sponsor the league for the next three years.

While the sponsorship isn’t totally expected to change the salary sheet of the club sides in the league, it however will bring a financial respite of some sort to all the clubs which will enable them to pay their players’ salaries rapidly and wholesomely.

Highest paid players in Ghanaian Premier League

8. Eric Ofori Antwi – Legon Cities (Annual Salary – Ghc18,000)

Highest paid players in Ghanaian Premier League

It’s quite unusual to have a goalkeeper as the highest earner or one of the highest paid members of any football team. But for Eric, it has become a usual occurrence considering his trajectory.

The 27-year-old former Ghana national under-20 football team shot-stopper was the highest earner at Medeama prior to his arrival at Cities last year,

Eric Ofori Antwi was Medeama’s highest earning player for two years, then he joined Legon Cities in 2021 and has since been one of the highest earning players in The Royals squad.

He currently pockets Ghc1,500 and if summed up for a year is Ghc18,000. Call him the Ghanian David de Gea and it’s not a mistake.

7. Kwame Baah – Asante Kotoko (Annual Salary – Ghc24,000)

Highest paid players in Ghanaian Premier League

Regarded as one of the household goaltenders in Ghana’s topflight league, Baah is the second goalkeeper on our list who is one of the highest earners in his team and the league.

Kwame Baah, 24, after a great audition at relegated Heart of Lions in 2015, has enjoyed a rapid rise in his seven-year professional career.

He arrived at Asante Kotoko after a three years spell at International Allies, of course with an improved offer which has seen him bag the Ghana Premier League champions medal last season.

Since he started playing for the Accra giants, Baah takes home Ghc 2,000 monthly, and he’s one of the highest paid players in the Prosper Narteh Ogum tutored side.

6. Yahaya Mohammed – Aduana Stars (Annual Salary – Ghc 24,000)

Highest paid players in Ghanaian Premier League

Veteran attacker, Mohammed, isn’t only one of the highest paid players in Ghana’s top division, but also one of the wealthiest football players in the league and in the country at large.

Just like Kwame Baah, Mohammed is being paid a sum of Ghc 24,000 annually. But the interesting part about his earnings at the club is his age given that players who are on the other side of thirty do not command a huge salary in the Ghanaian top division.

5. Kwasi Donsu – Medeama (Annual Salary – Ghc 24,600)

Highest paid players in Ghanaian Premier League

After the exit of goalkeeper Eric Ofori Antwi at Medeama in 2019, Donsu and teammate Ibrahim Yaro followed suit but instead, joined the Colorado Springs on loan.

For Donsu, the loan only lasted for eleven months and the 2018 top scorer rejoined the Mauve and Yellow. On his return, he became the club’s highest paid player with a takehome of Ghc 2,050 monthly.

4. Fatau Dauda – Asante Kotoko (Annual Salary – Ghc 30,000)

Highest paid players in Ghanaian Premier League

Fatau Dauda has sojourned through the African continent before he eventually settled for the current league champions in 2022 as a free agent.

The aged goalkeeper was brought in to complement the brilliance of the duo of Kwame Baah and Danlad Ibrahim.

A sum of Ghc 2,500 is what Dauda earns at Asante which if cumulated would make a staggering Ghc 30,000 annually.

3. Mamane Lawali – Hearts of Oak (Annual Salary – Ghc 42,000)

Highest paid players in Ghanaian Premier League

Lawali is the first footballer on our list who isn’t a Ghanaian but earns hugely. The nimble-footed Nigerien defensive midfielder was signed as a free agent from Sudanese side Al-Merrikh in 2020.

Upon his arrival, he was instantly installed into the first team and has been returning dividends ever since. His current monthly salary stands at Ghc 3,500 which makes him one of the youngest but highest paid players in the Premier League.

2. Felix Annan – Maryland Bobcats (Annual Salary – Ghc 50,000)

Without doubts, Felix Annan is the highest paid goalkeeper in the Ghanaian league. This was made official following his move to the Bobcats earlier in the year, displacing Nuru Sulley who has left Ghana for an Iraqi side, Dohoski FC.

He pockets a whooping Ghc 50,000 annually.

1. Abednego Tetteh – Hearts of Oak (Annual Salary – Ghc 60,000)

Here’s the highest earner in the league and one of the wealthiest footballers in the Ghanaian nation. The hearts of Oak veteran striker has played outside Ghana, namely Ethiopia and Sudan respectively.

It’s not an aberration that he earns that much. Tetteh could be deadly whenever a goalscoring opportunity is created. For the Oaks to have paid much, the club was sure of who they signed.
