Players boycott training over unpaid salary

Over 18 players of the Sekondi side on Tuesday afternoon boycotted training.

Ghana Premier League side Sekondi Hasaacas on Tuesday afternoon saw their players boycott training due to unpaid eight months salary.

Indeed, only twelve (12) out of the thirty (30) registered players trained, and most of whom were the players who were signed this season.

Notable among them were Eric Bekoe, Saliw Babawo, Fatawu Mohammed and Michael Abu.

The shocking incident happened the same day the club made a historic unveiling of their new players for the upcoming season.


By the end of February, some of the players will be owed unpaid salaries spanning eight months; which means the players would not have received their contractual money since July 2015.

With barely four days to the start of the Ghana Premier League, the players decided to express their frustrations after management had failed to address their concerns

Coach Yusif Basigi, who had driven from Black Queens camp at Pampram to Takoradi in the morning nonetheless went ahead with his program for the day with his new assistant, Joseph Agyemang Jnr.

Hasaacas will play their opening Premier League match away to Wa All Stars on Sunday.
