Ghanaian striker Emmanuel Osei Banahene has confirmed to Egyptian portal KingFut that he has terminated his contract after Ismaily failed to fulfill their obligations towards him.
Former Bechem United hitman Emmanuel Banahene has left Ismaily heading to Ghana after the club have failed to fulfill their contractual obligations towards him, with the player going months without pay.
When asked about the truth of his contract termination, Banahene told KingFut: “Yes, they owe me money and don’t want to pay. I didn’t run away, I canceled my contract.
“Last season they owed me one hundred and twenty thousand dollars and this season too,” Banahene continued.
Ismaily came out to claim that the Ghanaian striker went Awol and they’re set to file a complaint to FIFA, something which he was refuted by the player with photo confirmation that he has already taken the matter legally with FIFA.
“They are the ones not telling the truth. I was the one who took them to FIFA and they said I should redraw the case or else they won’t pay me and won’t let me play, that was why against Smouha I was not allow to play,” Banahene revealed.
Reports came out earlier on Sunday that Ismaily officials went to Ghana national team camp in Alexandria to search for Banahene, but the player confirmed that he is back at Ghana ever since leaving the club.
The player went on to prove that he has the right to unilaterally terminate his contract after revealing a clause in his contract that allows him to leave if he goes three consecutive months unpaid.
“Last season was six months plus this season they were suppose to pay ninety thousand US Dollars before the league started but they gave me forty five thousand only.
“So sorry for them, I do my best for them but they don’t want to pay me so I have no choice than to leave,” Banahene concluded.
