Players of Ghanaian giants Kotoko are not happy about the salaries and other bonuses they receive from management, a report in the Daily Guide claims.
The players want an improvement in their salary conditions next season so they have petitioned management over the matter.
A source close to Kotoko, who divulged this information, said the players also want their winning bonuses to be increased in the coming season.
He said the players in their petition to management raised six key issues, one of which was that they want the remaining amount of their enticement fees to be settled in full.
The Kotoko players also lamented over the management’s inability to fulfill its promise of rewarding the players with cash over the last two league triumphs.
He disclosed that the Kotoko players said they were willing to go all out for the club this season, so the least management should do was to see to their needs.
Meanwhile, Kotoko have travelled from Kumasi to Tamale for their pre-season training. The players and technical team left the Baba Yara Stadium on Wednesday in the morning. Ideally, Kotoko were supposed to make the trip on Sunday, but it was postponed at the eleventh hour.
The pre-season trip was again postponed twice in succession to the chagrin of the vociferous supporter of the club.
Speculations that made the rounds in Kumasi were that Kotoko were facing financial problems, hence the continual postponement of the trip. Finally, the Kotoko team was able to make the trip on Wednesday morning to prepare for their league title defense.
