Ghana To Have Formal Agreements with Players Over Bonuses In Future World Cups

The Ghana Football Association says it will have contracts with players for their World Cup bonuses at future tournaments after having to rapidly bring in $3 million in cash to keep the team playing in Brazil.
GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi says Ghana had used cash “in order to prevent player revolts” at previous tournaments. He said Ghana paid players in cash at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups.
Ghana’s players didn’t have signed agreements for their bonus payments for Brazil and threatened to strike unless they were paid, fearing they ultimately wouldn’t see the money. The threats ahead of Ghana’s decisive final group game against Portugal forced Ghanaian authorities to fly the money in on a chartered plane to keep the squad happy.
