Ghana's No. 1

I have no sympathies for Kotoko- Schmidt

Published on: 29 March 2012

Former Asante Kotoko coach Hans Dieter Schmidt says justice has been done after the Court of Arbitration for Sports ruled the club must pay him 99,000 Euros for being sacked seven years ago.

The German coach went to Fifa after he was sacked in 2005 without his entitled compensation.

Kotoko must pay the amount in 30-days or face relegation to the third-tier league in Ghana football.

"This is not an issue of sympathy for Kotoko even though I like them very much but this an issue with contract and legalities so after seven years. This is justice I feel," Schmidt told Sunyani-based Storm FM

"They (Kotoko) must know their responsibility and that is what they have to follow now. I have been in contact with (George) Amoako, Dr. Sarpong and Larsen but the issue is beyond me, it is now with the highest body Court of Arbitration for sports".

"As to how they raise the money. It is totally not my issue but the issue of law. Am just waiting for the money because I think I was not treated fairly at all.''

Schmidt sent Kotoko to the final of the 2004 CAF Confederation Cup where they lost to rivals Hearts of Oak on home soil.

He was sacked a year after that.
