Asante Kotoko shot-stopper Felix Annan has revealed that government's decision to halt all football activities in the country has adversely affected the players financially.

Zylofon Cash Premier League was suspended by the government following Anas Aremeyaw Anas investigative piece.

Football administrators have found it difficult settling the players financially mainly because their main source of money is the ticket.

Felix Annan has insisted that the suspension doesn't help financially.

“Actually, is not easy because everybody has his job and that is what we do for a living."


"We play football to take care of our families and our friends,” Annan said in an interview.

“Suspending football doesn’t really help us financially."

"Moreover, the development of a player comes down because when you are playing the league, maybe players will be having contracts and then signing for other clubs but when its suspended, it’s very disturbing”, Felix Annan added.
