The Ghana Football Association(GFA), Players’ Status Committee (PSC), has asked Asante Kotoko to pay its former coach, Maxwell Konadu over $40,000 for unilateral termination of contract.

The PSC, in their ruling, sighted by JoySports, described management’s decision to sack Konadu as ‘hasty, premature and without just cause’.

Maxwell Konadu filed a petition before the football governing body  following the club’s decision to part company with him on December 17, 2020, after a 1-0 loss to Great Olympics.

Asante Kotoko in their sack letter said, the former Black assistant coach’s ‘inability to exhibit a high level of performance which will prepare the team to the height it deserves to be,’ was the basis for his dismissal.

Maxwell described the sacking as unfair, and made demands for damages worth $60,000, one year salary of $36,000, the remainder of a sign-on fee of GH¢ 30,000 and a winning bonus of GH¢ 2,000.

The Players Status Committee granted partial reliefs, rejecting his request for $60,000 compensation for damages, but ruled that Kotoko should pay the rest of the reliefs sought after by Maxwell.

Asante Kotoko in their defence offered to pay three months salary in lieu, sign-on fee and part payment of his bonuses.

The Porcupines leadership cited Ghana labour laws for their decision to pay him off with three months salary, but in the opinion of the PSC, the laws of the Ghana FA and FIFA ‘prevail’ over the national law.

Kotoko also noted in their defence that, clause 11(2) of the contract of agreement between the two parties states that, if for any reason the club terminates the contract of the coach either than performance related, he shall be paid three months salary in gross in lieu of notice.

This position was rejected by the Is-Hak Alhassan Status Committee.
