Ghana striker Dominic Adiyiah has revealed he is yet to receive his salary since last October from his Ukrainian club Arsenal Kiev despite playing actively for the side.
His Ghanaian compatriot Abeiku Quansah is also likely to be going through a similar ordeal which could lead to their exit from the club.
The capital club is going through dire financial crisis and have not paid their players since for the past six months leading to a mass player exodus.
Adiyiah, who joined Arsenal Kiev from AC Milan last season, has revealed he has not received his wages and winning bonuses since last October.
“Salary? As far back as six months, that’s how long I’ve not been paid my money and that is since the month of October,” Adiyiah told a Ukrainian football website.
The situation at the club will obviously affect Adiyiah’s compatriot Quansah who has been at the club for the past two seasons.
The current crisis at the club is contributing to the team’s poor form in the Ukrainian Premier League as they have slipped down to 12th and are without a league win since last November.
And, the 2009 FIFA U20 World Cup golden shoe winner is worried by the turn of things for the club.
“It’s pretty sad and hurtful for Arsenal Kiev. Arsenal is in trouble. Many players left the team to be replaced by new ones.
“In fact, this is a new team, you know? No teamwork, no understanding, there is no coordination.
“Another problem – there is no motivation. The players have lost it because there is compensation for their work.”
Adiyiah has scored thrice in 20 league appearances for Arsenal Kiev this season.
