Burkinabé tactician, Seydou Zerbo has disclosed that he has started the process to drag Ghanaian giants, Asante Kotoko to the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) over the club’s refusal to settle his three-month salary.
Zerbo was appointed as head coach of the Reds to replace Dr Prosper Narteh Ogum, who guided the team to win the 2021/22 Premier League.
According to the Burkinabé trainer, the club has refused to settle his three-month salary arrears after his departure.
Speaking in an interview for the first time since his exit, he said: “I have started the process to drag Kotoko to FIFA in order to get my three months’ salaries. After the Medeama defeat in Kumasi, the CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah came to see me and informed me about the decision to terminate my contract. Indeed it was a sad moment for me but I had to accept it and move on,” Seydou Zerbo told Kumasi-based Fox FM.
He added: “We signed an agreement that I will receive three months’ salary following my contract termination but I haven’t received it as of this time. I have called Nana Yaw Amponsah several times but he does not respond. I have even sent him many messages and the situation is the same and so right now my next step is to gather all the documents and report the club to FIFA.”
“I am told a new board is to be named. I want them to settle me, pay my salary arrears but I have no option than to go to FIFA if they fail,” Coach Zerbo concluded.
