I never received $100k after my Black Stars termination – CK Akonnor

Former Ghana coach Charles Akonnor has denied receiving $100,000 from the Ministry of Youth and Sports following the termination of his contract in 2021.

The former Black Stars gaffer was dismissed following a 1-0 defeat against South Africa in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.

During a press brief last Wednesday, the Sports Minister, Mustapha Ussif, revealed that the country owes former Ghana coaches, Akonnor and Serbian Milovan Rajevac.

“We still owe Milovan and C.K. Once their contract was terminated, we sat with them, negotiated their exit and C.K was paid $100,000 immediately after the negotiation same as Milovan.”

However, Akonnor in an interview with Graphic Sports has responded to the Minister’s statement with different revelations on the amount.

“I never received the kind of money the minister mentioned. I don’t want to put out how much they paid me but it was not $100,000 as the minister said.

“My contract is still with the FA and if he likes he can go and check the agreement we had and see before making the claim and he will know that he is wrong,” Akonnor stated.

CK Akonnor played 10 games, winning four, losing four and drawing two.

Following his dismissal, Akonnor was replaced by Milovan Rajevac but the Serbian was also dismissed following a poor performance at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon.
