CK Akonnor & David Duncan Demand $275,000 Black Stars Unpaid Arrears


CK Akonnor and David Duncan are demanding their two years of unpaid arrears during their stay as Black Stars coaches.

Akonnor, who was the head coach with Duncan as his assistant is still owed a total amount of $275,000 two years after leaving office.

The duo were appointed in 2020 on a two-year contract. However, their stay was brought to a halt after the Black Stars lost to South Africa in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in Johannesburg.

A source speaking to Graphic Sports revealed that Akonnor, who is a former Asante Kotoko head coach is unhappy with the situation and every effort to retrieve it had proved unproductive.

The source bemoaned the poor treatment being allotted out to the two local coaches who have virtually been left to beg for what they worked for, while an expatriate coach who succeeded him but was axed afterward early last year has been compensated.

“I am aware Milovan Rajevac who took over from Coach Akonnor but was sacked after his disastrous campaign at the last AFCON was paid all his entitlements before leaving the country.

“How can we be so cruel to our own people? It is not as if the coach is begging for some money but he is only demanding what is due him look at how he is being treated.

“I don’t think it is fair and the authorities must intervene to avoid any future embarrassment,” he bemoaned.

However, investigations by Graphic Sports reveal that the GFA signed an agreement with the 47-year-old coach to be paid $25,000 monthly when he took over the Black Stars in January 2020.

Per the contract, the coach was entitled to his full salary in the event that he was dismissed before his contract expired.

Unfortunately, Coach Akonnor is still owed seven months’ salary estimated at $175,000, together with the remaining four months he was supposed to have served which amounts to $100,000.

Meanwhile, David Duncan was also on a $10,000 monthly salary, which is in arrears for four months, aside from other benefits.

Akonnor and Duncan were replaced by Milovan Rajevac. However, the Serbian was sacked after the Black Stars’ poor performance at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon.
