A report filed by Kumasi-based Kessben FM indicates that the Porcupine Warriors are owing their players due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has forced football activities in the country to be suspended.
According to Frank Owusu Ansah, popularly known as Sir Franco Nero, one player, who is an integral member of the team called him yesterday, July 27, 2020, to plead with him to speak on behalf of the players to get their salaries.
“One player called me yesterday and said boss, you guys should help us because since we suffered this 40% deduction, the money doesn’t reach anywhere. Moreover, for two months now we’ve not received our salaries and we are suffering as players and they don’t know who to ask because of the current situation at the club,” these were the words of a footballer of Asante Kotoko, according to Frank Nero.
The players and former management led by George Amoako agreed to a 40% salary deduction a few months
ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disrupted all football activities in the country since 15 March 2020.
Since the breakup of the previous management a couple of months ago, the club has been without a management team, with numerous rumors suggesting a new CEO will be appointed this week.
