Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Ghanaian second-tier side, Tema Youth will be laughing to the bank following Thomas Partey's transfer to English side Arsenal.
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Pulse Ghana, Partey who played his youth football for Tema Youth before moving to Atletico Madrid are entitled to 5% of the transfer sum, which will amount to $2.25 million as training and compensation fees.
The deputy Black Stars captain completed a sensational switch from Atletico Madrid to Arsenal for a $50 million deal on transfer deadline day to end a protracted deal.
According to the Training Compensation section which is found in Article 20 of the FIFA transfer regulations:
“Training compensation shall be paid to a player’s training club(s): (1) when a player signs his first contract as a professional, and (2) each time a professional is transferred until the end of the season of his 23rd birthday. The obligation to pay training compensation arises whether the transfer takes place during or at the end of the player’s contract. The provisions concerning training compensation are set to U+t in Annexe 4 of these regulations.”
Tema Youth will be covered under the Solidarity Mechanism in Article 21 of the FIFA transfer regulations which states that:
“If a professional is transferred before the expiry of his contract, any club that has contributed to his education and training shall receive a proportion of the compensation paid to his former club (solidarity contribution). The provisions concerning solidarity contributions are set out in Annexe 5 of these regulations.”
The box to box midfielder joined the youth side of Atletico Madrid in 2013 from Tema Youth and after two loan spells with Real Mallorca and Almera, before finally returning to Diego Simeone’s side in 2015.
Meamwhile, Mohamed Salah exhibited an amazing gesture on the streets of the UK when he saved a homeless man David Craig who was harassed by a group of yobs within a petrol station close to Anfield.
The Egyptian star pulled up at the petrol station in his Bentley and then saw David being harassed by some boys as they continued to taunt him.
According to Mirror, the situation occurred moments after Liverpool defeated Arsenal 3-1 in the Premier League on September 28.
