The playing body of the Black Galaxies is said to be disillusioned over the Sports Ministry’s failure to honor promises made to the team ahead of the 2022 CHAN tournament in Algeria.
The Black Galaxies have gained qualification to the quarterfinals of the tournament after placing second in their group.
Before qualifying for the tournament itself, the playing body was promised $5000.00 for each win against Benin and Nigeria, adding up to $10,000.00 per player.
Reports reaching us however say that the players have been paid $3000.000 only even after securing qualification to the tournament.
There is said to be another agreement that stipulated that each player would be paid $6000.000 as a qualification bonus during the competition.
Nhyira FM, a Kumasi-based radio station is reporting that the government is reneging on its promise to pay bonuses and has gone to slash the sum from $6000.00 to $4500.00 after a meeting held between deputy Sports Minister Evans Opoku Bobbie, Afriyie Barnieh, Danlad Ibrahim, and Gladson Awako.
The players are reported to be unhappy about the development going into the quarterfinal match on Saturday
