Former Black Stars coach Kwasi Appiah shared that he has instructed his lawyers to deal with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) over his outstanding salaries plus winning bonuses.
Appiah’s two-year stint as the coach of the Senior national team came to an end in December when the GFA decided not to renew his contract.
However, the 59-year-old is owed five months of salary and outstanding bonuses totalling around $180,000.
His bid to reclaim the money has proved unsuccessful and the former Asante Kotoko player said he has given the matter to his lawyers.
“I decided to keep quiet on my salaries’ issues all these while but I think if you are working with someone and you are no more, the best way is to give the person whatever he deserves and there will be peace,” he is quoted as saying by Accra-based Starr FM.
“The question is how do I feed my family meanwhile I quite remember when they took over Dr. Kofi Amoah gave them $1,000,000 dollars and I even understand there is also some $500,000 from FIFA or whatever, the bottom line is you should look at the essential ones and try and sort it out.
“But it looks like they don’t care. This is money I have worked for and they are not telling me anything which I feel it doesn’t show sign of respect. So I have told my lawyers to deal with it.”
