Ghana assistant coach Gerard Nus stages sit-in-protest against unpaid salary
A member of Ghana’s coaching staff at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations is staging a sit-in protest at a hotel in the capital Accra in a row over his salary.
Nearly three weeks on from this year’s tournament in Gabon, all of the technical staff – except sacked coach Avram Grant – are yet to be paid.
Assistant coach Gerard Nus is refusing to fly to his home nation Spain until the matter is addressed.
Citing financial difficulties, the Ghana Football Association has sought assistance from the country’s government to settle the matter.
The Black Stars extended a Nations Cup record in Gabon this year when becoming the first team to reach six semi-finals.
