Sports Ministry engaging Appiah on his salary arrears – Dep Sports Minister

THE Deputy Sports Minister has revealed that the former Black Stars coach, Kwasi Appiah, is being engaged on his salary arrears.

Speaking on Joy News’ ‘Beyond the Lockdown’ on Sunday, Perry Okudzeto said government still owed the former coach because of some issues that came up before the termination of his contract with the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

Although he refused to disclose the issues, Mr Okudzeto said once they were settled, the former coach would be appropriately remunerated.

“I know that the ministry is in talks with Kwasi Appiah and at the appropriate time, once the issues are ironed out, he would be paid,” he said categorically.

The former Black Stars coach on Friday, May 22, in a third letter to the GFA, demanded the payment of his salary arrears, a sum of $180,000, owed him.

According to Mr Appiah, should the GFA fail to acknowledge receipt as they have in the last two instances, he would be to forced to proceed to FIFA to demand the money, as enshrined in his contract. –
