Ghanaian top-tier side West African Football Academy could consider disciplinary actions against defender Konadu Yiadom who has made a falseful claim against the club on radio.
The 19-year-old, whose transfermarkt value stands at €100,000, told Angel FM that the Academy Boys do not pay salaries to players but they rather receive bonuses from their contract.
WAFA have sharply watered down the comments in a statement released on their digital platforms and stated the player was probably misquoted.
The statement on the club’s social media page reads:
“Probably one of our players was misquoted in circling online publications.
#WAFAcademySC has more than 30 players under contract and for many years salaries are always paid before the end of every month.
Also, bonuses are paid after every game.
Besides that, players and staff get free formal education, accommodation, food and medications,” the club explained.
The club could prefer ethics charges against the player for his actions though the extent of the punishment could only emerge from the club’s code of ethics.
Yiadom, 1.9m tall, has been one of the consistent players for WAFA in the last two seasons and is likely to join the club’s ex-players who have left the shores of the country for European adventures.
