Previous Hearts of Oak star Bernard Dong Bortey has expressed his disappointment over treatment method meted out to him by previous Ghana FA administration, revealing that erstwhile FA general secretary Kofi Nsiah stole his $9,000 from the 2006 Planet Cup qualification reward.

Ex-president John Agyekum Kufuor declared benefits of $10,000 just about every to the playing entire body and complex staff of the BlackStars for clinching a 2006 FIFA Earth Cup ticket.

The funds was in addition to $8,000 every single member of the squad picked up as bonus just after profitable 4- in opposition to Cape Verde in Praia on the last match of the qualifying series to seal the nation’s initially-at any time Earth Cup physical appearance.

According to Dong Bortey, he received just $1,000 from the $10,000 reward from the president even with playing a key job in securing the Entire world Cup ticket.

“I played most of the qualifying game titles to our [Ghana] Earth Cup in 2006. Previous President JA Kufuor rewarded $10, 000 just about every to each participant who played a aspect in the qualifying campaign. The income came from the Sports Ministry, with each and every player’s name boldly written at the back envelopes so I went to the FA to get my share,” Dong Bortey mentioned in an interview with Caci Television set.

“Kofi Nsiah [former FA general secretary] confirmed me an envelope with my name at the back. He counted $1,000 from my personal $10,000 share and gave it to me. So the question I stored asking myself was, where is my equilibrium. Is the individual who took the revenue my relative? That revenue was my sweat.”

“I made a decision not to speak about it but it is really haunting me for the reason that if the president’s purchase was to give each individual participant who even kicked a ball for the workforce $10,000, why really should I be offered just $1,000. I try to remember enjoying from Somalia below and we conquer them 8-. I featured heavily in that activity, and also from Uganda and Congo so why did I not get the $10,000? he quizzed.

“If I reflect on the previous, I will Ghana soccer and the FA have not addressed me properly,” he deduced.
