The Black Stars technical team members are set to be paid their accumulated three months salaries.

Head coach Kwesi Appiah, his two assistants Ibrahim Tanko and Maxwell Konadu, and other members are yet to be remunerated since taking charge in May and supervising three games.

But with the Sports Ministry set to receive US$ 1.5 million from national team sponsors, Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), the technical team will soon be given what is due them.

According to a statement, the amount is to be used for sports development in the country and also settle all debts owed the Black Stars backroom staff.

But there is some relief now that GNPC’s board has confirmed the release of funds.

”I can confirm to you that an amount of $1.5m have been released to the sports ministry to cater for expenses of the Black Stars technical team and general sports development,” Sports Ministry Spokesperson Sports Elvis Adjei Baah told

”No time-line can be giving to clear the arrears owned the technical team, it can be today or tomorrow but it will be soon.”
