Deputy Minister for Youth and Sports Perry Okudzeto has disclosed that his outfit is engaging former Black Stars coach Kwasi Appiah to settle his arrears.
There is an ongoing tussle between the GFA and the former Ghana coach with regards to his unpaid salaries after leaving the senior national team job months ago.
Appiah is still owed 5 months of his salaries and all attempts to retrieve the money has proved futile and has instructed his lawyers to deal with the GFA.
The GFA, however, has maintained that the Ministry of Youth and Sports is responsible for paying Black Stars coaches, and not them.
And Perry Okudzeto has confirmed that government still owes the former Coach because of some issues that came up before the termination of his contract with the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
According to him, the former Al Khartoum boss will be paid once all issues are ironed out.
“I know that the [Sports] Ministry is in talks with Kwasi Appiah and at the appropriate time, ones the issues are ironed out, he would be paid,” he told Joy FM.
Kwasi Appiah, 59, was hired by the country’s football governing body for a second time in May 2017 and stayed on till his contract expired in December 2020.
Appiah is the only Ghanaian to have qualified the Black Stars to the FIFA World Cup.
