The Ghana Sports Ministry has finally
recompensed the Black Stars with $10,000
each as win bonuses for the teams effort in
thrashing Mauritius by 7-1 in the AFCON 2017
opener at the Accra Stadium on June 14 this
year. The team had still not received the traditional reward going into the Rwanda game
but sources close to the ministry have told
Sports Crusader that Avram Grant’s men were
paid $10,000 each before they took to the pitch
in Kigali. There were earlier reports about a
purported move by the Ministry of Youth and Sports to announce a drastic cut in the winning
bonuses of the Black Stars after the Mauritius
win due to the country’s prevailing economic
hardship. In the proposed plans, the current $
10,000 winning bonus was to be cut by 50
percent to $5,000. But Sportscrusader.com can confirm that there has not been any
reduction in the team’s reward package as
widely rumoured. Meanwhile,the sports
ministry is yet to settle the Stars win bonus for
the Rwanda victory.
