RTU players boycott training over 5 months unpaid salaries

Players of Ghana Premier League side Real Tamale United (RTU) have boycotted training as a response to not being paid their salaries for several months.

The club has failed to pay its players for the last five months, as they continue to struggle in the Ghanaian topflight.

This was confirmed by the RTU’s head coach Abdul Mumin Abdulai, who revealed that he has also not been paid for close to a year now.

He explained that his players downed tools ahead of Wednesday’s training session and refused to train over their unpaid salaries.

“The players boycotted yesterday’s training because they haven’t received their salaries in nearly five months, plus some unpaid,” Mumin Abdulai told Akoma FM, as quoted by Joy Sports.

“Me, as the coach, I have not been paid in nearly a year. Our situation is dire, and we require immediate help.”

RTU have won just one of their last eight matches in the Ghana Premier League and are currently rooted in a relegation dogfight.
