Maxwell Konadu And Asante Kotoko Find Common Grounds



Peace has finally reigned as Maxwell Konadu and his former club Asante Kotoko have found common grounds.

Maxwell Konadu and Asante Kotoko have in recent days been involved in a “mini war” over his severance package.

The embattled manager last week dragged the club before the Player and Coaches Status committee for what he termed unlawful dismissal.

Maxwell Konadu demanded $60,000 compensation for the unilateral termination of his contract, a signing on fee of GHS 30,000, GHS 2,000 for winning bonuses and $36,000 for the remainder of his contract with the club.

Kotoko who were unhappy with the move also wrote to Maxwell Konadu asking him to pay an amount of $22,800($300) to the club for keeping the club’s vehicle (Toyota Fortuner) since his dismissal.

However, the National Circles Council led by its Chairman Christopher Damenya held a meeting with Maxwell Konadu on Wednesday.

At the end of the meeting, the two parties found common grounds. Maxwell Konadu agreed to hand over the Toyota Fortuner.

He as well agreed to withdraw the complaint lodged against the club at the Player and Coaches Status committee among others.

Below is the resolution reached:

1. Maxwell Konadu has returned the Toyota Fortuner which was his official vehicle to Asante Kotoko

2. The NCC led by its Chairman Christopher Damanya and Nana Kwame Dankwa have taken possession of the vehicle and handed same to the CEO of the club.

3. Maxwell Konadu has instructed his lawyers to write to the Player Status Committee to withdraw the case he lodged against Kotoko.

4. Nana Yaw Amponsah the CEO of Kotoko has agreed to pay Maxwell Konadu his outstanding entitlements as soon as possible.

5. The NCC has assured Maxwell Konadu that they will pay the difference between what he is claiming from the club and what he will actually be paid by Kotoko.

6. The NCC has promised the management that they will also be ready to pay the amount accrued as “loss of use” of the official vehicles should management continue to pursue that case.
