CK Akonnor has initiated arbitration proceedings at the Ghana FA Normalization Committee against Asante Kotoko over breaches of his employment contract as head coach of the club.
Greater Accra Representative and a management member of Kumasi Asante Nana Kwame Danquah revealed this on Happy FM’s ‘Anopa Bosuo Sports’.
According to Nana Kwame, CK Akonnor is demanding 2 years salary, league trophy cash, and CAF money Zone cash.
Kotoko will appear before the committee on 15th August 2019.
The ex-Ghana international who was relieved of his head coaching duties in July, about nine months into his three-year contract, is accusing the club of material default which should be followed by compensation damages.
The decision had come just weeks after he led the Porcupines to secure a return to the Caf Champions League by winning the Normalization Special Cup Tier-One competition.
The George Amoako-led Kotoko management stated that the coach had been elevated to the position of technical director and appointed Norwegian Kjetil Zachariassen in his stead.
Akonnor rejected the new role insisting the decision amounts to unilateral termination of his appointment. Kotoko, on the other hand, also maintain their action was within the terms of their contact.
