Head of Club Consult Africa, Yussif Alhassan Chibsah says he will accept if his former club Asante Kotoko decide to go by the old payment terms proposed by his agency regarding their client Abass Mohammed.
The method proposed by Chibsah was for Kotoko to pay half of the signing on fee owed the player and settle the salary debt monthly until he finds a new club.
However, the proposal was rejected by the Reds management which forced the player and his representatives to drag the club before the Ghana Football Association’s Player Status Committee (PSC).
The Committee after deliberations on the issue found the Porcupines guilty for abusive conduct after excluding the defender from their squad and denying him his fundamental right of training with the team.
Therefore, Kotoko has been ordered to pay Abass Gh¢40,000 as remainder of his enticement fee and a six-month accumulated salary of 10,800 and a ban from registering new players domestically for one registration period with a fine of Gh¢10,000 for abusive conduct.
Speaking on Pure FM today, Chibsah said his client will not hang on the PSC ruling if Kotoko wants to resolve the issue the previous way.
“We will not hesitate to welcome Kotoko when they decide to engage us to accept the old terms to iron out any outstanding issue between my client, Abass Mohammed, and the club. As the fan and ex-player of the club. I don’t know what other managers will do.”
Abass Mohammed signed a three-year contract with the Porcupine Warriors on 30 October 2018 after returning home from a season’s spell in the United States with USL side Harrisburg Islanders where he was entitled to a monthly salary of Gh¢1,800 and enticement fee of Gh¢60,000 to be paid over the period at the beginning of each season.
But ahead of the 2020/21 season, Abass Mohammed was told his services were no longer required and was barred from training with the club.
He claims sending three letters to the club for an explanation and payment of his outstanding enticement fee of ¢ 20,000 but there were no positive responses hence his Player Status committee decision.
