The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has cleared the air over the hullabaloo surrounding the unpaid salaries and bonuses of former Black Stars manager Kwesi Appiah.
Kwesi Appiah who was relieved of duties in December 2019 was on a $35,000 monthly salary during his tenure.
The erstwhile Black Stars manager hasn’t still received his Salary from August 2019- December 2019 and winning bonus for the win against São Tomé. All amounting to $185,000.
Kwesi Appiah has recently been very vocal on the situation, threatening to drag the matter to FIFA should incase he doesn’t receive remittance within the next 7 days.
In spite of that, the Communication Director of the FA, Henry Asante Twum has shed light on the situation. He stated emphatically that it is not the responsibility of the FA to pay the coach, but the state.
“In Ghana, the state has always paid the coach and not the GFA. This has been the practice for several decades and nothing new” he said.
“The GFA forwarded Kwesi Appiah’s letter to the Ministry of Youth and Sports, so they are working on it. For now I cannot say anymore,” he concluded.
