Former Black Stars Coach Kwasi Appiah seems not to understand why the GFA are dragging their feet in paying his money as he believes the Israeli tactician, Avram Grant had better treatment than him.
According to him, the Ghana FA after parting ways with the latter paid him in full and for that matter doesn’t know why his situation is different.
Appiah’s contract with the national team came to an end on December 2019 after the FA denied him with an extension.
The former Al Khartoum trainer who was on a US$35,000 monthly salary when in charge of the Black Stars is demanding for his unpaid wages for six months from August 2019 to December 2019 which totals US$175,000 and a winning bonus of US$10,000.
It is understood that Appiah through his lawyer, Thaddeus Sory has written a letter of reminder to the Ghana Football Association after previously writing to them in March 2020, demanding monies owe him.
However, the gaffer in an interview has descended heavily on the Ghana FA after failing to respond to his letter saying local coaches are not treated properly.
Speaking to Asempa FM, he said, “I don’t know what is wrong with Ghanaians because my situation is just like that of Avram Grant. The FA after parting ways with Grant paid his arrears just in a month time. They should ask themselves what I do to survive because I have been home for about eight months now without working”
“We were all here when Dr Kofi Amoah gave you $1million and I understand you are going to get money from FIFA as well. So why don’t they consider paying my money”
“I’m even surprised about the FA for saying the Sports Ministry pays my salary and again telling to go to the Ministry and fight for my money. The thing is, I don’t have any issue with the Ministry because I signed a contract with the FA but not the Ministry. From where I sit, I know the Ministry is helping the FA and even on my appointment letter, former president Nyantakyi’s name is on it and so why do you direct me to go to the Ministry.”
“Even if I should go to FIFA, the FA will be responsible but not the sports ministry. They should pay my money to settle everything” he ended.
