A member of the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association [GFA], Samuel Anim Addo has disclosed that the Ministry of Youth and Sports has pay coaches of the various national teams.

It will be recalled that the country's football governing body entered into an agreement with the Sports Ministry which required the Ministry to pay monthly salaries to coaches of all the national teams.

However, the Ministry has failed to pay a penny to the coaches.

According to Anim Addo, it is unfortunate that the coaches have not been paid since they were appointed adding that the situation has made it difficult for the FA to recruit more competent technical brains for the various national teams

“You know for the first time all our national team coaches have been given contracts," he told Asempa FM.

"All of them are supposed to be paid but unfortunately, the ministry has not been able to pay them till now.

"It is very unfortunate because we had a discussion with the ministry and they agreed to let all the coaches enjoy some pay”, he added.

Meanwhile, CK Akonnor, who is the head coach of the Black Stars has received part payment of his salary.
