Ghana Premier League Goal King Abednego Tetteh 'Really Hurt' By $435 Voucher as Prize Money
- Abednego Tetteh has reacted to the prize money given to him as GPL goal king
- The former Bibiani Goldstars player scored 18 goals to win the top scorers award
- Tetteh is currently without a club with the new season set to start on Friday
Former Bibiani Goldstars forward, Abednego Tetteh has shared his disappointment after he was rewarded with a GHC5000 voucher, which is approximately $435, to visit the dentist as his goal king prize money.
The ex-Hearts of Oak and King Faisal attacker ended last season as the top scorer with 18 goals.
Despite his exploits, the 32-year-old failed to make the Black Stars squad for the games against the Central African Republic and Liberia.
“When the Black Stars needed a striker to be part of the national team, despite being the top scorer of the 2022/2023 GPL season, I wasn’t called," he told Wontumi FM, as quoted by footballghana.com.
According to the 2016 FA Cup winner, the prize money for his Goal King award hurts him, comparing it to the Referee of the Year award.
“The GFA gave me a GHC5,000 voucher to visit a dentist as my GPL goal king prize. I won’t lie, I’m really hurt. How can you give me GHC5,000 to go to a dentist just to wash my mouth, which to me is very disrespectful," he said.
“Why do you have to tell me to brush my teeth for GHC5,000? Best referee received a car and the best player received GHC20,000 and a Television and I being the top scorer would have appreciated it if they gave me GHC10 airtime rather than the GHC5,000 voucher," he added.
Tetteh is currently a free agent following the end of his contract with Bibiani Goldstars, as reported by Transfermarkt.
