Emmanuel Clottey, agent deny Esperance contract cancelled
Ghana striker Emmanuel Clottey and his agent have rubbished reports that the player’s contract with Esperance has been terminated.
An official of his former club Berekum Chelsea confirmed on a local radio station on Monday that there has been mutual consent to cancel the three-year contract.
The club’s spokesperson Isaac Amponsah told Boss FM that Esperance’s inability to meet the payment plan for his US$ 1.5 million transfer fee.
“I know I have a contract with the club and they pay me. Nobody from Esperance has called me to tell me about this,” Clottey told MTNFootball.com
“I am at the Nations Cup and I don’t want to worry myself with this.”
Clottey’s agent Emmanuel Mensah, who is based in London, dispelled talks that his client is now clubless.
“Esperance sold their striker Yannick Ndeng to Sion in Switzerland and also sold Youssef Msakni to a Qatari side so it can never be an issue of money,” Mensah said.
“They (Esperance) have a contract with Clottey and Berekum Chelsea so assuming the story is true, how do they cancel the player’s contract without his representative?.”
Clottey joined the dethroned African champions for a Ghanaian record fee after scoring 12 goals in 11 matches.
He has made three appearances for the Blood and Gold and scored one goal.
