The former U-20 World Cup winner has exclusively disclosed the monthly salary he receives from Hearts of Oak.
Inkoom, who formerly played for Asante Kotoko before moving to abroad followed the steps of his former national team-mate Sulley Muntari to join the GPL giants on a year deal.
Arguably, he can be described as one of the best defenders in the just ended season, having helped Hearts of Oak to defend the MTN FA Cup after making an assist in their 2-1 win over Bechem United.
It was recently emerged that ex-Black Stars winger, Sulley Muntari, is receiving just GH¢1 each month for playing for Accra Hearts of Oak, but Inkoom has also disclosed in an interview on Original Tv’s Sports Punch Show that he takes half of Muntari’s salary meaning he receives just 50 pesewas every month.
“We play Hearts of Oak from our hearts. If Muntari receives Gh¢1 then I also receive 50 pesewas,” he stated.
“Hearts of Oak is a big club, we love the club and Muntari is my senior player. If he takes ¢1 then I have to take half of his salary.”
Before joining the Rainbows, Inkoom had intended to play for his former team Kumasi Asante Kotoko but he was unable to reach a deal with Porcupine Warriors.
He was part of the Kotoko side that won the Ghana Premier League in 2008, before he moved to Swiss giants Basel.
The 2009 U-20 World Cup winner also played for the Black Stars between 2008 and 2016, featuring at numerous Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), as well as the 2010 FIFA World Cup, where Ghana reached the quarter-finals.
The right-back’s last professional club was Georgian topflight side Torpedo Kutaisi, where he stayed for less than a year.
The 32-year-old was also part of Ghana’s 2015 Africa Cup of Nations campaign where the Black Stars lost the final to Ivory Coast.
