Ghana Under-17 women’s team striker, Jane Ayieyam is urging the Sports Ministry to consider paying bonuses to the Black Maidens in cash to avoid any delays.
Last month, the Sports Ministry presented a cheque to the Black Maidens to settle the outstanding bonuses owed the players for qualifying for the Costa Rica 2014 Under-17 Women’s World Cup back in November 2013.
“We played our qualifiers before the Under-20 (Princesses) they had their money. They paid them in dollars after the World but we waited for long and we were paid in Cedis, not even in cash but as a cheque. We want cash,” Ayieyam told Accra-based Starr 103.5FM.
One year after awaiting the qualification bonus, the Black Maidens have still not been able to access the funds since the payment has not reflected in their personal bank accounts.
