Asante Kotoko has expressed their disagreement about a Ghana Football Association decision ordering the club to pay over US$41, 000 to former Coach, Maxwell Konadu for breach of contract.
Asante Kotoko sacked Maxwell Konadu in December 2020, after CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah unilaterally terminated his contract.
It would be recalled that Coach Maxwell Konadu reported his former employers to the Player Status Committee of the GFA for wrongful dismissal.
He felt the decision by the football administrator was unfair.
In the committee’s ruling released Tuesday, April 20, 2021, it explained that they declined the request of Maxwell Konadu seeking $60,000 in damages and legal costs. Instead, they ordered Kotoko to pay the former Coach $36,000 as residual salary, GH¢30,000 as outstanding signing on fee, and a further GH¢2000 as an outstanding winning bonus.
In its statement, Asante Kotoko indicated that they disagree with the ruling and plan to exhaust all legal remedies available, even if it means proceeding to the Court of Arbitration for Sports.
