The transfer of Ibrahim Imoro from Division two side Thunder FC to Asante Kotoko is set to bring more challenges to the Premier League club as the prepare to face FIFA.
Imoro completed a move to Kotoko after signing a four-year deal from Thunder FC last year for a fee believed to be Gh¢ 240,000, which is yet to hit the account of the Division two club.
In an exclusive interview with Kumasi based Oyerepa FM, bankroller of the club Alhaji Nash said:
“We have officially written to Kotoko demanding the transfer fee of Ibrahim Imoro with a ten-day ultimatum. I have been advised by my lawyers to report Asante Kotoko to FIFA and CAF for the unpaid transfer fee of my boy [Ibrahim Imoro].”
“Kotoko and coach Maxwell Konadu contacted me for the service of Imoro. We agreed on a transfer fee of Gh¢240,000 but they have refused to pay us after rejecting an initial payment [Gh¢ 35,000] which was a peanut.
He added, “I rejected the initial payment of Gh¢ 35,000 because they paid less of the signing-on fee agreed with the player. We all agreed that his signing-on fee to be paid annually was Gh¢ 40,000 but they decided to pay only Gh¢ 10,000.”
“The player was signed on a four-year deal which cost Gh¢240,000. Ibrahim Imoro was to received Gh¢160,000 and my club was to be paid Gh¢ 80,000 per the contract we all signed.
“The club’s Chief Executive Officer, Nana Gyambibi Coker has not been responding to my calls. The best option for my outfit is to report them to FIFA and CAF. We have informed the Ghana FA with letters on the issue.”
Imoro appeared 11 times and registered a goal for Asante Kotoko before the halt of the league season due to COVID 19.
