The Ministry of Youth and Sports has refuted claims, the technical team of Ghana’s U-23 side are yet to be financially catered for ever since they were appointed.
Media reports were rife this week that the coaching setup of the Black Meteors have been ignored by the sports ministry ever since taking charge.
The reports indicated that despite steering Ghana to the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations, the Ibrahim Tanko led technical team are yet to be financially rewarded for their efforts.
The reports created quite a stir as the team readies for the competition (which serves as a qualifier for the next Olympic Games football event next year) in Morocco.
In a statement to clear the air, the Sports Ministry said ‘we wish to categorically state that these claims are false’.
The Ministry further added that ‘the technical team members have been paid all their outstanding bonuses except their bonuses for defeating Algeria’.
The statement assured that the ministry was working around the clock to get the issue resolved and wished the team well ahead of the tournament.
Ghana will face Congo on Sunday June 25, before facing Morocco and Guinea next.
The top 3 teams to emerge from the competition will qualify for the football event of the next Olympics Games.
