Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi has lambasted former national team assistant coach Gerard Nus, saying he has been hysterical.
Nyantakyi was responding to media reports that Nus is owed match bonuses after serving in the technical team during the recent 2017 African Cup of Nations in Gabon.
The GFA boss said the Spanish boss will be paid his money when it is available through the ministry of youths and sports.
Furthermore, he said Nus has been a difficult customer as their fight started in Gabon, adding that the entire technical bench is owed.
“Admittedly there’s a delay but there’s no denial of indebtedness. Owing someone is no crime, no shame,” Kwesi told Inside Africa Football (IAF).
MBOKANI OUT FOR SIX WEEKS
“Since AFCON, efforts continue to be made to pay technical staff of the Black Stars. The indebtedness to Gerald is not peculiar to him but the entire technical team.
“In Ghana the ministry of youth and sports has responsibility to make these payments. I gather from my personal endeavours that the debt will be redeemed.
“Avram Grant understood that he would be paid when the money is ready so he left. There’s no way the bonuses owed won’t be paid. I cannot commit to a date because that’s outside the control of the GFA.
“He’s generally hysterical. He started this attitude in Gabon. One day he threatened not to go for training with the team if his contract status wasn’t clarified.”
Reports also indicate that the coach is still based in Accra staying in a hotel with the bill paid by Nyantakyi's GFA.
