Asante Kotoko Clash With Players’ Status Committee Over This

Kumasi Asante Kotoko have been fined Gh¢207,800 by the The Players’ Status Committee (PSC) of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) concerning petitions from four former players.

The PSC was consulted by Mathew Kelvin Andoh, Abass Mohammed, Evans Owusu and Stephen Tetteh Aryiku regarding the club’s unilateral termination of their contracts.

The petition submitted by the aforementioned players outlined outstanding salaries and signing on fees by Kotoko.
