Former Asante Kotoko coach Seydou Zerbo plans to report Kotoko club to FIFA

Seydou Zerbo, who was appointed as the head coach after Dr Prosper Narteh Ogum led the team to win the 2021/22 Premier League, is claiming that the club has failed to fulfill their obligation of paying his outstanding salary after he left. That’s definitely not ideal for either party involved.

In his first interview since leaving the club, Zerbo expressed his disappointment and frustration by stating, “I have started the process to drag Kotoko to FIFA in order to get my three months’ salaries.” It appears that Zerbo and Asante Kotoko had signed an agreement stating that he would receive three months’ salary following the termination of his contract. However, he claims that he hasn’t received the payment and his attempts to contact the CEO, Nana Yaw Amponsah, have been in vain.

It’s unfortunate when situations like these arise, as they can create a lot of tension and disputes between the parties involved. With Zerbo’s intention to report the club to FIFA, it’ll be interesting to see how this plays out and what action FIFA may take in response to his complaint. FIFA has regulations and mechanisms in place to deal with disputes between clubs and individuals, including issues related to unpaid wages.

Zerbo also mentioned that he has been informed about the appointment of a new board at the club and hopes that they will settle his salary arrears. However, he emphasized that if they fail to do so, he feels he has no choice but to proceed with the FIFA complaint.

These kinds of situations can be quite messy, and it’s never pleasant to see disputes between clubs and their former employees. Let’s hope that a satisfactory resolution can be reached for both parties involved, whether through direct negotiations or the intervention of FIFA.
