Coach Seydou Zerbo of Burkina Faso has declared his plan to file a complaint against Asante Kotoko with the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA).
The coach made this decision in retaliation to the Porcupine Warriors allegedly refusing to pay the remaining three months of his salary after he left the squad.
After Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum left Asante Kotoko, Zerbo was named the team’s head coach. After a poor stretch of performance, he was let go from his job.
Zerbo expressed his unhappiness at the situation in his first interview after leaving the club, complaining that the organization had failed to fulfill its commitment to pay off his three-month salary arrears as agreed upon after his contract was terminated.
“In order to receive my three months’ salary, I have initiated the process to compel Kotoko to appear before FIFA. The CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah visited me following the Medeama loss in Kumasi and informed me that my contract would be terminated. Though it was a painful moment for me, Seydou Zerbo said on Fox FM, “I had to accept it and move on.
“We signed an agreement that I would receive three months’ salary following the termination of my contract, but as of this writing, I have not received it,” he continued.
