Ghana brings cash to Brazil to end player dispute

The Ghanian government are flying around £1.8 million in cash to Brazil to appease their World Cup stars who are threatening to strike unless they receive the money immediately, reports The Telegraph.


Ghana


Prize money for the World Cup is usually distributed following the conclusion of the tournament, but the Ghanian Football Association have been forced to ask for an advance on their promised payments in order to settle debts that they have to their players.


However, the government’s plans to physically bring the money to the players could cause even more problems, with the Brazilian authorities claiming that bringing such a quantity of cash into the country without declaring it for tax purposes would violate local laws.


The players had indicated they may boycott training before their final World Cup group game against Portugal today if they did not receive the appearance fees they are owed. This led the country’s president John Dramani to make the promise to the players that the money would be forthcoming.


Ghana face Portugal today needing to win to have any chance of progressing in this World Cup. Even a win would not be enough for the Black Stars, however, if the clash between USA and Germany finishes in a draw.
