Newly constituted board of Asante Kotoko is appealing to Black Stars Coach C.K. Akonnor to temper Justice with Mercy by waiving the interest accrued from the Fines imposed on the club after the coach dragged them to the Player Status committee for wrongful termination of contract according to 442gh.com.
Member of the board and Business Man Alhaji Lamine met the coach to discuss the possibility of bringing the issues to an amicable end.
The meeting was to get the coach to waive the interest on the over $200,000 fine imposed on the club.
The football association ruled that the club has to compensate the 45-year-old for wrongful termination of contract.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has ruled in favour of Black Stars coach CK Akonnor in relation to a legal dispute between the 45-year-old and former his employers Asante Kotoko.
After an abrupt end to his tenure as head coach of the Porcupine Warriors, the coach hauled the club before the Player Status Committee of the GFA for a breach of contract.
Subsequently, the Status Committee found the club guilty of wrongful contract termination.
“The Appeals Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) further upheld the decision of the Player Status Committee with respect to the contractual dispute between Coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor and Asante Kotoko SC,”
“It would be recalled that the Player Status Committee found Asante Kotoko guilty of breaches in the contract with Akonnor and asked the club to pay him compensation.
Akonnor lost his job as Kotoko head coach in July last year, only nine months into a three-year contract.
The disgruntled coach then dragged the Porcupine Warriors to the GFA Player Status Committee, demanding salary for two years, league trophy cash, and Caf Confederations Cup group stage entitlements.
