Former Dreams FC goalkeeper, Lord Bawa Martey has disclosed how he lost his girlfriend to another man due to poor salaries in the Ghana Premier League.

"Someone simply snatched my girlfriend. She left me because of money. In the beginning, she was all cool because of the publicity I was getting, but publicity wasn't enough to keep her," he told Angel FM in Accra, as quoted by Ghanasoccernet.

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 little 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.
