Former Ghana coach, Kwasi Appiah is planning to drag the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to FIFA, a close source has revealed.
Appiah’s decision comes after the country’s football body have failed to pay his five months unpaid wages.
The current GFA parted ways with the 61-year-old following the expiration of his contract on December 31 last year.
Appiah, who was on a $35,000 monthly salary is demanding for full payment from August to December 2019 plus month winning bonus of $10,000.
The former Al Watani trainer has written a letter of reminder to the FA after previously writing to them through his lawyer Thaddeus Sory in March 2020, demanding for the unpaid wages.
However, the FA is reluctant to pay Kwesi Appiah.
But a close source to the former Al Khartoum manager says the gaffer is planning to drag the FA to the FIFA should they fail to meet his deadline indicated in the letter sent to the FA.
“Former Black Stars Coach, Kwasi Appiah will never take GFA to Court for his 5 months unpaid salary and a winning bonus amounting to not less than $185,000.
“But will head to FIFA in a worse case scenario,” the close source said.
Kwesi Appiah, who was the first indigenous coach to qualify the country to the FIFA World Cup in Germany in an interview with Starr FM on Wednesday branded the posture of the Football Association as ‘disrespectful’.
“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.” He told Starr FM Sports.
“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.
“But it looks like they don’t care but this is monies 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.
The leadership of the Ghana FA has appointed CK Akonnor as the head coach of the senior national team, the Black Stars on a two-year deal.
He is deputized by former Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak coach, David Duncan.
