The Minister of Youth and Sports, Isaac Asiamah has said the payment structure of former Black stars coach, Kwesi Appiah would be processed in due time.
The Sports Ministry revealed this in a press briefing earlier today concerning the easing of restriction on sporting activities in the current climate of the Coronavirus pandemic.
According to him, the Ministry is making amends to make payment to the former Black stars coach adding that, ”Gradually, we will pay him all his entitlements”.
“Kwesi Appiah has done a lot for Ghana. We respect him, We gave him the job and gave him all the support. We owe him some arrears from his contract extension and we cannot say we will not pay him. Gradually, we will pay him all his entitlements.” Isaac Asiamah said.
The assurance of the Minister comes after Kwesi Appiah went public with complaints that the Ghana Football Association had not paid his outstanding salary arrears of five months (between August and December 2019) amounting to $185,000.
“It looks like they don’t care. This is money I have worked for and they are not telling me anything which I feel doesn’t show a sign of respect and I think that my lawyers need to deal with it. So it’s either they will take it to the court or Fifa. The GFA hasn’t called me, neither has the Ministry,” he lamented.
