$20,000/month Salary For Kwasi Appiah, Desailly wanted 100K Euros
Newly-appointed Black Stars coach James Kwasi Appiah would receive $20,000 (GHC 35604.28) as his monthly salary, DAILY GUIDE SPORTS can confirm. Appiah’s salary is a sharp increase from the $3,000 he was receiving as an assistant coach to his Serb Superior Goran Stevanovic, who was taking 30,000 Euros per month.
He met with his employers, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Executive Committee yesterday to discuss details of his contract.
Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi claims Marcel Desailly did not miss out on the Black Stars coaching job due to his ‘excessive’ demands. The ex-France captain wanted to aim his own assistant coach and other members of his backroom staff. Desailly is also reported to have demanded 100,000 Euros (GHC 233760.02) salary.
I think it was basically because of the commitment not wholly because of the demands. We negotiated and got to some understanding, Marcel has commitments. He has a lot of contractual commitments that made it difficult to take up the appointment at this material moment. He is very interested. Whatever Marcel asked was not exceptional. We have provided similar incentives to previous coaches – Nyantakyi
