Key Kotoko players are planning to boycott their CAF Champions League return fixture against Liberian side Barrack Young Controllers over unpaid salaries and bonuses, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

Kotoko players have reportedly gone unpaid for several months, with their club saddled with debt, which has prompted key players of the club to either feign injury or refuse to travel with the team, Ghana’s leading football website can report.

GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal that the players held a meeting in the run to the first leg tie against the Liberians at home where they resolved to demand for their money before playing in front of their home fans.

Many disgruntled fans feel the lack of motivation resulted in their below-par performance which saw them only manage a close 2-1 win over the Liberian champions.

Talk of unpaid salaries and bonuses has resurfaced in the squad again with key players planning to either feign injury or refuse to travel with the team, just days before they travel to Monrovia.

Already Yahaya Mohammed has been ruled out with an injury while skipper Michael Akuffo is believed to be battling an injury with uncertainties surrounding the other key players.

The managerial acumen of current boss Samuel Opoku Nti has been criticized as he has lacked the capability and credibility to lead the Ghanaian side.

The club claim to have over dozens of sponsors but have struggled to fulfill their financial obligations to the players with ‘school boy’ managerial skills being adopted by the current management team.

GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal that officials of the Kumasi-based side have been economical with the truth as players are reluctant to give off their best in the continental campaign.

    You should stop this nonsense, you just want to create confusion in our camp, we love our GM even if he has no qualification he knows the football more than you do and the holders of phd, doctorate and whatever they did nothing special when they had the opportunity, so give us a break!
