â€œThe contractual agreement we have with these players has not been fulfilled and things are moving from bad to worst.
â€œIt has been a very difficult situation for the club.
â€œWe still owe the players winning bonuses even though we top of our Zoneâ€ Â â€œOur players in Accra are struggling to find money to travel up North for training for us to prepare for the rest of the season.
â€œWe have communicated several times to our directors to come to the aide of the club but it looks like things have fallen on death ears.
