Hearts of Oak star Patrick Razak may be considered as one of the fine wingers on the local scene but his monthly wage leaves a lot to be desired.
Razak, one of the key figures in Black Stars B squad that lifted the WAFU Cup last year, is paid GH¢450 per month, his agent Abdullah Alhassan has revealed.
The revelation comes on the back of Hearts shocking decision not to sanction a lucrative deal for the diminutive attacker. Guinean giants FC Horoya offered the Phobians $80,000 for the services of the 28-year old and would pay him over 100 percent of the salary he is receiving in Ghana.
But Hearts are seeking to convince Razak to sign a new contract that would increase his monthly earnings to GHS1,500. His contract with Hearts will expire in November.
"Patrick Razak will not sign a new deal at Hearts of Oak if his contract runs out,” Alhassan said on Asempa FM's Ultimate Sports Show.
“FC Horoya from Guinea came with an offer of $3,000 per month but Hearts of Oak refused to sanction the move. Hearts of Oak say they will offer Patrick Razak GHC 1,500 if he signs a new deal which for me is not good".
“The bottom line is he will not renew his deal at the club, his contract will expire this November”, he added.
It's become a ritual that before the start of a new season, the best player of last term leaves for greener pastures.
