President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku has taking a swipe at erstwhile Black Stars manager Kwesi Appiah for going public over his unpaid salaries.
Mr. Kurt Okraku divulged that the association is not responsible for paying the salaries of the manager, and believes Kwesi Appiah knows that.
“I think it’s most unfortunate,” he told Ghanaweb. “Honestly speaking I will not want the FA or the government to come into the public space in that manner,” he added.
“Everybody knows, Kwesi Appiah knows the processes that are involved.
“He knows the GFA engaged him but we are not responsible for paying his salaries. The Ministry of Youth and Sports pays the salaries of our national team coaches, and they do it via the sponsorship from GNPC.
“There are processes that one has to go through; at times it does end quickly, at times it does delay but it’s unfortunate that he went public,” Kurt Okraku added.
Kurt Okraku went on to reveal that Kwesi Appiah isn’t the only person who is owed.
“It’s not only Kwasi Appiah who is owed, Stephen Appiah is owed, Richard Olele Kingston is owed too.. and even Avram Grant was owed but it’s been cleared so appreciate the process.”
Kwesi Appiah’s tenure as Black Stars manager ended in December, he was replaced by CK Akonnor.
