Former Black Stars Coach, James Kwesi Appiah feels the current Ghana Football Association (GFA) is deliberately refusing to pay monies owed him.
The football governing body owes Kwesi Appiah salaries and bonuses, but according to the former Al Khartoum gaffer all attempts to get it settled have proved futile.
The GFA did not extend the contract of Appiah when it expired December last year.
But Appiah – who was on a $35,000 monthly salary – is demanding for his unpaid wages from August to December 2019 as well as other winning bonuses
Speaking to Starr FM Sports , Appiah believes the GFA is being disrespectful to him.
“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.
“The question is how do I feed my family meanwhile I quiet remember when they took over Dr. Kofi Amoah gave them 1,000,000 dollars and I even understand there is also some 500,000 dollars from FIFA or whatever, the bottom line is you should look at the essential ones and try and sort it out.
He continued: “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” he added.
Kwesi Appiah remains the only indigenous coach to qualify the Black Stars to World Cup. He guided the senior national team to the 2014 Mundial held in Brazil.
