Spaniard Gerard Nus, who served as video analyst for the Black Stars during the tenure of Avram Grant, has returned to Spain after a shameful impasse with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) was brought to an end Sunday.
Nus had been refusing to vacate his Accra hotel to fly back home until he has been paid all monies owed him by the FA from Afcon 2017.
However, after the GFA raised the money needed to pay him, the issue of who would settle his outstanding hotel bills became another problem.
Members of the Stars technical team at the just ended Afcon were not paid their bonuses after the tourney, with the FA citing financial difficulties as the cause. Everyone was asked to fly home and wait for their monies but Nus refused, instead staying in the hotel until he’s paid.
According to a GFA statement, Nus caused a scene at the hotel when he was told he had to pay for extra expenses he incurred during his stay there. He refused, claiming the FA must pay for it, but the FA said they would only pay for food and accommodation and all extra expenses must be borne by the individual.
An understanding has now been reached with the hotel on paying the monies, allowing Nus to return home.
“Thanks to all people of Ghana. Great memories always from this passionate football country,” Nus tweeted out early Monday.
So comes to an end yet another shameful chapter in the annals of Ghana football.
