Black Stars Want Bonus Arrears Paid Before Comoros Duel

The players of the senior national team, Black Stars are demanding that monies owed them by the Ministry of Sports as arrears are paid before they travel to Comoros for the World Cup qualifier.

According to the playing body they have not received their winning bonuses for the last game they played for the country in September.

The players say they did not receive bonuses for the game against Rwanda in Kigali.

Reports say there are talks ongoing between the GFA, Ministry and the team to settle issues amicably.

Meanwhile the coach of the Black Stars Avram Grant has charged authorities to resolve any bonus row with the players before the Comoros encounter tomorrow.

He noted that the only way his team can concentrate is for the issue to be dealt with.

The uncertainty followed comments by Sports Minister Dr Mustapha Ahmed that bonus payments are nor regulated by law and also paid based on the Ministry’s “ability to pay”. Although there has not been any definite statement to confirm the Stars’ fears of a slash in their bonus package, it has been speculated widely that the $10,000 package will be cut by half.

The players are uncertain of how much they will each pocket as bonus if they won their game against the Comoros Islands.

Ghana will play Comoros Island Friday in Comoros before the return leg on next week Tuesday in Kumasi.
