Real Tamale United players have threatened to stop playing for the club if their outstanding salaries and bonuses are not paid.
The players are said to be owed monies due them running into months despite continuing to render services to the side in the second tier league.
RTU are currently top of Zone 1A in the ongoing Division One League and look good to qualify for the Middle League – the ultimate step towards Premier League qualification.
But the board and management have refused to pay their players – a clear contradiction of the Club Licensing System being adopted by the Ghana FA.
The players have now issued an ultimatum to the club’s top hierarchy – insisting they will quit playing once their overdue demands are not met.
“We have written to the club demanding the payment of our outstanding signing on fees and salaries and awaiting a response,” the team captain said.
“If nothing is done, we will not play the second round of the league.
“We cannot play football on an empty stomach and therefore if our demands are not met, I can tell you we are not prepared to play the league.”
RTU were relegated from the Ghanaian top flight after finishing last with a record number of defeats in last season’s Ghana Premier League.
