I was never given $100,000 after my dismissal as Black Stars coach – CK Akonnor

Akonnor has denied claims by Sports Minister Mustapha Ussif

Former Black Stars head coach, CK Akonnor has denied claims by Sports Minister Mustapha Ussif that he was paid $100,000 after his dismissal.

This comes after the Sports Minister at a press briefing stated that Akonnor was given $100,000 immediately after his sacking as head coach of the Ghana senior male national team.

“We still owe Milovan [Rajevac],” said the Minister at a press briefing last week in Accra.

“All of C.K and Milovan, once their contract was terminated, we sat with them, negotiated their exit and C.K was paid $100,000 immediately after the negotiation same as Milovan.”

But the former Asante Kotoko tactician has rebuffed the claims, stating that the money he received was not $100,000.

“I never received the kind of money the minister mentioned. I don’t want to put out how much they paid me but it was not $100,000 as the minister said,” Akonnor told Graphic Sports.

“My contract is still with the FA and if he likes he can go and check the agreement we had and see before making the claim and he will know that he is wrong,” Akonnor stated.

CK Akonnor was sacked as Ghana coach in September 2021 following a run of unconvincing results from the team.

He was replaced by Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac who was also later sacked after supervising a disappointing AFCON campaign in Cameroon where Ghana picked up just one point from their three group stage games, finishing bottom of Group C.
