BLACK Satellites Committee Chairman, Wilfred Osei Parma has assured players of the national under 20 team to expect their winning bonuses by Tuesday, June 16, 2015.
Coach Sellas Tetteh’s boys exited from this year’s FIFA Under-20 tournament currently ongoing in New Zealand at the round 16 stage against fellow West African counterpart, Mali. The Satellites returned to Ghana on Friday June, 12 after their early elimination from the competition.
Despite qualifying from the group phase as leaders with 7 points in group B, the team failed to advance to the expected target of a semi final berth.
The team however boasts of defeating tournament favourites Argentina (who has produced world stars including Lionel Messi, Kun Aguero and Javier Masherano at this level and double as 6-time South American champions) in the group stages.
The Black Satellites are yet to receive their round 16 qualification bonus and Osei Parma promises the monies will be ready before Tuesday.
“It is very key: it is the financial commitment from management towards you(players).”
“We have already started the discussions in Auckland and we are going to continue”.
“There are strong indications from the ministry; everything is set for the investment; We are projecting that latest by Tuesday June 16, we should have the monies for you”, he stated.
The exit becomes Ghana’s worst campaign at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup having last emerged as winners in 2009.
*Officials of AshantiGold SC on Friday, June 12, pleaded with the Obuasi Circuit Court to grant them an out of court settlement with SSNIT after the insurance company drag the club before the law for failing to pay the SSNIT contributions of their players.
SSNIT officials sued the management of the Obuasi based side for playing hide and seek with the registration process that will get their players on the SSNIT Pension Scheme which is mandated by law.
Information gathered revealed that Ashgold appeared in court pleading that initially they did not understand the scheme procedures. As a result, the court should give them up to Monday, 15th June to make sure that all their players are registered.
So SSNIT has temporarily withdrawn the case from court,hoping the club will do the right thing.
AshantiGold SC are therefore expected to commence and complete the SSNIT registration process for their players and other staff to secure a proper future for them.Officials of AshantiGold SC on Friday, June 12, pleaded with the Obuasi Circuit Court to grant them an out of court settlement with SSNIT after the insurance company dragged the club before the law for failing to pay the SSNIT contributions of their players.
Meanwhile,the head coach for Sekondi Hasaacas, Yussif Basigi has described officiating in the Ghana Premier League as inconsistent. The veteran trainer who doubles as the head coach of the Black Queens believes officiating could have been better than its current state.
Basigi said, “Officiating in the league has been inconsistent on several occasions. There has not been a single club that has not complained about officiating. It is not only when you lose that you complain; sometimes you can win or even draw and yet you will not be satisfied with the results. I believe they are humans but I don’t know if this second round they will improve”.sportscrusader,com
