Ghana coach Akwasi Appiah has admitted that his players have expressed their worries over the unpaid bonuses but the caretaker boss insists his charges are fully committed to beating Sudan on Sunday.

Bonuses of US$63,000 have not been paid by government which ignited fears of a boycott of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

With players returning home to play the match in Kumasi, they have approached the coach to express their unhappiness over the delays in paying the money.

But Appiah, who will be in charge of the squad for the first time since the departure of Milovan Rajevac, says the players will not sabotage their country because of the bonus problem.

“The players have approached me over the delay in the bonus issue to express their unhappiness over it,” Appiah said.

“I have assured them that this issue will be sorted out after the game but the most important thing is that they will not sabotage their country.

“They have never had in in their mind to boycott the game. For now we are focusing on the game first.

“We have also had assurances from the sports authorities who visited us yesterday that it will be sorted out. So there are no problems at all.”

The Stars are expected to leave Accra for Kumasi on Thursday and will play a friendly later in the afternoon against a first division side.

The Black Stars top Group I with three points and three goals and a victory would boost their qualification to the 2012 African Cup scheduled for Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, who are co-hosting the event.
