I’ll take Kotoko to FIFA – Seydou Zerbo reveals

The Burkinabe trainer joined Kotoko in August, 2022 on a 22-month deal but got sacked after just seven months in charge

Former Asante Kotoko head coach, Seydou Zerbo has disclosed plans to report the club to FIFA over refusal to settle his unpaid salaries owed him before leaving the club.

The Burkinabe trainer joined Kotoko in August, 2022 on a 12-month deal but got sacked after just seven months in charge.

Seydou Zerbo was fired in March, 2023 after the club’s painful defeat to league champions Medeama SC at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

Speaking on Kumasi-based Fox FM for the first time after his sacking , Seydou Zerbo revealed that he has begun the process to report Asante Kotoko to FIFA over three months unpaid salaries.

“I have started the process to take Kotoko to FIFA in order to get them to pay my salaries of three months. After the Medeama defeat in Kumasi, the CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah came to see me and informed me about the decision to cancel my contract. Indeed, it was a sad moment for me, but I had to accept it and move on,” Zerbo said.

“Therefore we had a written agreement that was supported by my contract that I will receive three months salaries following my contract cancellation by the club but I have not received it as at this time. I have made several phone calls to Nana Yaw Amponsah, but he does not respond. I have even sent him many messages, and the situation is the same, and so right now, my next step is to gather all the documents and report the club to FIFA” , Zerbo said on Fox FM.

“I am told a new board is to be named. I want them to settle me , pay my monies and I know that can be done even if Nana Yaw happens to be no more the CEO since it is the club that I am dealing with or else I will have no option than to go to FIFA.”
