Prosper Harrison Addo, General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association has disclosed the Black Stars coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor and his assistant David Duncan willingly accepted for their monthly salaries to be slashed.
According to Prosper Harrison Addo, the technical team of the senior national team agreed to a pay cut because they wanted to contribute their quota to the nation amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
However, the statement from the GFA's General Secretary contradicts what the Minister for Youth and Sports, Isaac Asiamah said last week.
The Sports Minister made it known in an interview that, he has instructed the former Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko coach to accept a pay cut.
CK Akonnor and David Duncan were appointed in January as Black Stars head coach and assistant respectively. However, the duo have not received their monthly salaries since their appointment.
Akonnor last week named a 23-man Black Stars squad ahead of his maiden game. The four-time AFCON champions lock horns with Mali in an international friendly on October 9 in Turkey.
