Black Stars bonuses maintained

The Sports Ministry will be paying the usual rates to the Black Stars players for winning games in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The amount, which remains concealed will be incorporated into a contract to be signed by the players.

The Black Stars will be opening their campaign to qualify for next year’s finals to be staged in Morocco on September 5 when they host Uganda at the Baba Yara Stadium.

Kwesi Appiah’s team will be determined to secure a convincing result following their early exit at the 2014 World Cup.

The Black Stars camp during the tournament staged in Brazil was rocked with disciplinary and bonus issues.

The GFA is determined to avoid such a situation during the qualifiers and say all agreements will be incorporated into legally binding contracts to be signed by the players.

“We are paying the old rates and will communicate this to the players when they arrive,” Ghana FA spokesman Ibrahim Sannie Daara told Asempa FM.

“We will take the players through some orientation before presenting them with contracts to sign.

“All the benefits and repercussions of their actions will be captured in this contract.

“These are measures being employed to improve upon and tighten the systems we have put in place for the Black Stars.”

Ghana will make a short trip to face Togo in their second 2015 AFCON qualifier fve days after hosting Uganda in Kumasi.
