Ghana president intervenes in World Cup bonus row

25 June 2014, 17:15

Rio de Janeiro - The Ghana Football Association GFA says the country's president has intervened to appease unhappy World Cup players and avoid a possible strike over unpaid bonuses.

In a statement, the GFA says President John Dramani Mahama "personally spoke to the players" to assure them they will be paid their money on Wednesday.

Reports say players had been promised between $75,000 and $100,000 each to play at the World Cup. The GFA didn't give a figure.

But the GFA conceded that there was "agitation" among the squad ahead of Thursday's decisive group game against Portugal, which will decide if Ghana progresses.
