Asante Kotoko told to pay Maxwell Baakoh Gh25,000

Published on: 04 June 2021

The Porcupine Warriors have been slapped with yet another penalty, as the Ghana Football Association's Players and Coaches Status Committee has ordered the club to pay a massive sum to its former winger.

The Ghana FA's Players and Coaches Status Committee has ordered Asante Kotoko to pay Gh 25,000 to Maxwell Baakoh for unpaid signing-on fees.

During his time with the Kumasi-based club, the 25-year-old took the club to the Players and Coaches Status Committee to seek justice for unpaid signing-on payments.

After his two-year contract with Asante Kotoko ended before to the start of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season, Baakoh refused to extend his contract with the club.

He joined Egypt Premier League side Cleopatra FC on a free transfer before signing a loan deal with Libyan club Al Madina last month.

After Kwame Bonsu, he is the second former Asante Kotoko player to win against the Ghanaian giants this week.

The Ghana Football Association's Players and Coaches Status Committee has previously ordered Asante Kotoko to pay Bonsu $30,861 for an unpaid contractual agreement on his move to Esperance de Tunis.

Several former from Asante Kotoko SC, including Matthew Kelvin Andoh, Stephen Ayiku Tetteh, Abass Mohammed, and Evans Owusu, have experienced similar situations.
