Former Aduana Stars coach Herbert Addo to sue club for compensation

Herbert Addo is demanding compensation from Aduana Stars

Former Aduana Stars coach Herbert Addo will head to the law courts to demand his severance package following his unlawful dismissal.

His legal representatives claim his two-year contract was abrogated in August 2010 without being compensated.

Several unsuccessful attempts have been made to get the club to pay him off.

Addo was handed a two-year renewable contract after guiding the club to win the Ghana Premier League on their debut season in 2010.

But he was later informed by Chief Executive Kofi Manu that the club was undergoing restructuring and that his services was no longer going to be needed.

“Coach Addo was ready to complete his contract but he was not allowed to do so. Unfortunately they sent him off without respecting the details of the contract where any party which decided to terminate a contract has to pay compensation,” Addo’s lawyers have been quoted by the state-owned Graphic Sports.

“We have tried over the past year to get the club to do the right thing but that has not been successful.

“Yes coaches are hired to be fired but the right thing must be done.”
