Former Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah says his salary was almost reduced by Dr. Kofi Amoah during the normalisation period as Black Stars head coach.
He claims this almost happened because he refused to hand Sulley Ali Muntari and Kevin Prince Boateng a call-up for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt.
According to Appiah, he did not have a good relationship with Dr Amoah because the latter tried to impose his wishes on him.
Appiah told Joys Sports in an interview that he was threatened with job loss and a salary cut after refusing to do Kofi Amoah’s bidding.
“He threatened to sack me but I told him I am not afraid of being sacked. Those threats, I have heard them several times but I’m not the type that those threats get to me,” Appiah said on Prime Take on Joy News.
“He had a conversation with me about my contract and he was thinking of reducing my salary, but I told him look, you can’t reduce my salary, then he should take the job.
“He thought I didn’t deserve the [$35,000] salary I was on and when you do that, you are disrespecting whoever you are dealing with.”
Appiah has confirmed applying for the job following the departure of Otto Addo
