Breach of contract: Gt. Olympics drag David Duncan to Status Committee

The Wonder clubs have reported their erstwhile coach David Duncan to the Player Status Committee of the Ghana FA for leaving his post.

Accra Gt. Olympics have reported the conduct of David Duncan to the Ghana FA Player Stutus Committee for beaching his part of the agreement they had.

The controversial coach was appointed in September, 2014 by his boyhood club, after they earned promotion back into the Ghana Premier league, but he left unceremoniously in December.

Olympics have written to the Ghana FA seeking explanations from David Duncan for such behavior and also want compensation from the coach if he has decided to walk out of his contract.

‘We hired David Duncan in September, but his worry was that he had an issue concerning the payment of his compensation by Hearts of Oak, after they were ordered by the Ghana FA to settle him for his dismissal,” Oluboye Commodore, a board member of the club told Fox fm.

‘So we decided to sort it out by ensuring that the time he works for Olympics is deducted from the duration within which Hearts of Oak have to make the amount.

‘A contract doesn’t mean only written one and even here Olympics have both written and verbal contract with Duncan, so we don’t see the reason why he left his job without informing us, hence we still consider him as our coach.

‘We have already written to the Player Status Committee demanding explanations from David Duncan for vacating his post and we have also requested for a compensation package to the tune of GHC 160,000 for a breach of contract.’

However, David Duncan had earlier indicated that he was not perturbed by Olympics threat to take him on, because he never signed any contract with them.

The former Hearts of Oak and Ashgold coach had virtually a one club career at Olympics during his playing days and also began his coaching career there.

There are reports that the 52-year-old coach is the favourite to land the Kumasi Asante Kotoko coaching job, after they told their coach Mas-ud Didi Dramani to proceed on a 4-month leave.

The Wonder club, as they are affectionately called, are lying at the bottom of the Ghana Premier League, with just 6 points from 7 games.
