Former Ghana Coach Kwesi Appiah wants to settle his legal matters with the Ghana Football Association and not the Sports Ministry.
Appiah has already revealed his intention to take appropriate measures to receive his unpaid bonuses and salaries from the Association.
It is reported the Ghana FA owes the 54-year-old an amount of $180,000. This amount to his four months unpaid salaries and two winning bonuses during his time at work.
Many have since asked Appiah to address the Ministry for his money, an action the former Al Khartoum Coach thinks will yield no result hence wants to settle issues with the Football Association who had a contract with him.
“It looks like they don’t care. This is money I have worked for and they are not telling me anything which I feel it doesn’t show a sign of respect and I think that my lawyers need to deal with it. The GFA hasn’t called me, neither has the Ministry,” Appiah told Starr Sports.
“The issue people don’t understand is that I did not sign any contract with the Ministry of Sports. I signed with the GFA so if I have got an issue, it is the FA that I have to deal with. And from where I stand, I know the Ministry is just supporting or assisting the FA. And it’s the FA’s responsibility to make sure I am paid.
“If I take the Ministry to court or Fifa, they would ask for a copy of my contract and it is the FA President and General Secretary who signed it. It got nothing to do with the Ministry. I do not understand why people are saying I receive my salary from Ministry so I should go and tackle them, no.”
The Ghana Football Association re-appointed Kwesi Appiah for a second term in 2017 and mandated him to win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, a mission he failed to accomplish.
