The Ghana Football Association(GFA), Players’ Status Committee (PSC), has asked Asante Kotoko to pay its former coach, Maxwell Konadu worth $41,000 for unilateral termination of contract.

Maxwell Konadu is a football coach and a retired Ghana international football player. He was the head coach of the Asante Kotoko, the manager of the Ghana national under-23 football team, and formerly the manager of Glo Premier League club Asante Kotoko.

This follows what the Committee described as “hasty” and “premature” sacking of the 48-year-old coach. Konadu was sacked by Kotoko in December following the team’s underwhelming start to the Ghana Premier League season.He subsequently petitioned the Players’ Status Committee over his dismissal, insisting the management’s decision was unfair.

Kotoko, in their termination letter to the coach, cited his “inability to exhibit a high level of performance which will prepare the team to the height it deserves to be” as grounds – something the coach considered illegality.On March 4, 2021, Konadu petitioned the Ghana Football Association Player Status Committee claiming that Kotoko unilaterally breached his contract which was expected to end on December 8 this year without just cause and demanded compensations totaling nearly $100,000.

He also demanded damages worth $60,000, one year salary of $36,000, the remainder of a sign-on fee of GH¢ 30,000 and a winning bonus of GH¢ 2,000.
