Abedi Pele and Tony Yeboah never took their winning bonuses- Joe Addo

Former Black Stars defender Joe Addo has revealed that legends Abedi Pele and Tony Yeboah did not take their winning bonuses and per dimes in the national team and rather gave the money to the rest of the team.

Joe Addo had a great career in the senior national team, playing in multiple AFCON tournaments with Abedi Pele and Yeboah.

In an interview with Joy FM, he revealed the kind of sacrifice those two legends made for the rest of the team.

“In my time at the national team, Abedi Pele and Tony Yeboah never took their winning bonuses and per diems. They always wanted their share to be distributed among the rest of the team.”

He added: “They even gave us money on top and because of that we wanted to die for them on the pitch. They had families they could have given the money to but they gave it to us instead. We knew that we will get money from them even before the administrators pay us.”
