Mas-Ud Dramani to be highest paid coach in Ghana with new contract extension at Kotoko
Mas-Ud Dramani will become the most paid coach in Ghana when he signs the one-year contract extension at Asante Kotoko.
The former national team coach has had his proposal for a contract renewal accepted by the club’s board.
Dramani will however not yet commit to the new deal until some outstanding issues relating to his expired two-year contract are addressed.
He was entitled to five percent of all player sales at the club in his initial two-year deal.
Kotoko however satisfied this clause only once despite the flurry of players that were transferred in the past two years.
The board will now be looking to fashion ways by which the consolidated debt owned Dramani will be defrayed before his signs onto the contract extension.
Kumasi-based Metro FM have reported that Didi Dramani will earn a monthly wage of GHS 9000 when his contract renewal kicks in.
This will make him the most paid coach in the country – surpassing the GHS 8000 reportedly being paid to new Hearts of Oak coach Herbert Addo.
Dramani has guided Kotoko to back-to-back Premier League titles since taking over from Maxwell Konadu.
His obvious weakness has however been the inability to guide the side through the qualification stage of the CAF Champions League.
