Oly, Annor Walker, FC Samartex before Player Status C’ttee today

Accra Great Olympics and its former Head Coach, Daniel Annor Walker, are expected to be high profile guests for the second time at the Player Status Committee (PSC) of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) sitting today at the FA’s Secretariat.

The two ‘combatants’ would be joined by a third party, FC Samartex 1996, hoping that the committee will deliver justice in a case filed by the Wonder Club.

Olympics had drag the veteran coach, Annor Walker and his current employers, Samartex to the committee, seeking compensation over what theydescribedas breach of contract between the coach and club.

Olympics also cited FC Samartex 1996 for inducement.

The Wonder Club argued and blamed Samartex for “Inducing Annor to sign a contract at a time that he was under contract and had committed verbally to renew. As a result, he abandoned his work without informing his employers.”

Indeed, Walker guided the Wonder Club to a respectable fifth place finish in the previous season’s league but that according to the club was no excuse for the clear disrespect for the contract between them.

It was also the case of Olympics that Coach Annor Walker signed the Samartex contract with three months left on his deal with the Wonder Club.

It is uncertain whether a ruling would be made today on the matter in which the Wonder Club appear confident of earning the compensation.

The committee will also consider over 30 new and existing cases before it.

Among the new cases before it involves player Larry Abass against Bayern (Only Jah) Royals Rovers FC; Sunyani The Wisers FC Ltd versus EurafricaCalcio Academy Ltd over Felix OheneAfenaDjan; Evans AppiahAyimadu versus BA United FC;Apoto Sports Consortium against Wamanafo Mighty Royals FC over AdamaAchana and Joseph Dinku of NinianiGoldstars.
