Coach Tanko is unhappy about how the financial problems is affecting his team in the ongoing season as they battle to retain their Premier League status.

Speaking in an interview on Asempa FM, Coach Tanko revealed that the technical team is currently dealing with a problem among the players after bonuses and allowances were paid to the team by an aide to Ibrahim Mahama, President of the Club.

According to him, the monies paid have generated a lot of issues due to the disclosure of amounts received by the players per their contracts they signed.

He disclosed that some players who were not playing regularly received huge salaries than some active players which seems to have caused some sort of dissatisfaction among the playing squad.

According to reports, the management and technical team have also not been paid for the past nine months.

RTU will play their next game against Elmina Sharks at the Nduom Sports Stadium on Sunday.
