Burkinabé coach Seydou Zerbo has intended to take legal action against Asante Kotoko by reporting them to the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) over salary arrears.
It is alleged that, the ‘Porcupine Warriors’, has failed to settle three-month salary arrears of the former coach after his departure from the team.
Zerbo was appointed as the head coach of Asante Kotoko following the departure of Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum. He was relieved of his duties after a poor run of form.
In his first interview since leaving the club, Zerbo expressed his disappointment at the situation, stating that the club has not fulfilled its obligations to settle his three-month salary arrears as agreed upon following the termination of his contract.
He said, “I have started the process to drag Kotoko to FIFA in order to get my three months’ salaries. Indeed, it was a sad moment for me but I had to accept it and move on. We signed an agreement that I will receive three months’ salary following my contract termination but I haven’t received it as of this time.”
