Ghanaian footballers Mubarak Wakaso and Frank Acheampong have signed deals to play at Chinese Super League side, Shenzhen FC.
Thirty-year-old Wakaso joined the side on a permanent contract from a free transfer.
The midfielder will stay in the Chinese Super League after leaving Jiangsu Suning who had been struggling financially to keep afloat.
He played 18 times for the club before they moved into financial turmoil. This is going to be Wakaso’s biggest pay cheque as he will earn $2 million a year.
The Ghana international had not played actively for close to six months after football was shut in China due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
But he grabs a juicy offer – far more better than the $1.5 million a year he was supposed to have earned at Jiangsu Suning.
Given his age, this is a massive retirement package for the combative midfielder.
Frank Acheampong on the other hand, spent three years at Tianjin Teda where he impressed heavily, scoring 34 goals on 86 appearances.
He signed a contract extension which was aimed at keeping him at the club until June 2022 but has now jumped ship to play for the nouveau riche, Shenzhen FC.
