Asante Kotoko Report USM Alger To FIFA For Unpaid Transfer Fees

Ghana Premier League side Asante Kotoko have launched a protest against Algerian side USM Alger over unpaid transfer fees of Kwame Opoku.

USM Alger signed Opoku in April and they are believed to owing the Porcupine Warriors over USD 300,000 of the transfer fees.

Reports in Ghana are that Asante Kotoko have petitioned FIFA stating that Alger has failed to honor their part of the bargain when the player was transferred to the club.

Opoku had just spent one season with the 24-time Ghana Premier League champions and made the move to USM, thanks to 9 goal and five assists in 16 matches in all competitions.

He had joined Kotoko from lower tier side Nkoranza Warriors in the 2019/2020 season and went on to became the Porcupine Warriors’s main source goals before his departure.

The 21-year-old made his USM debut in May in the Algerian Cup against their sworn rivals MC Alger.

The prolific striker was handed a starting berth to feature for Red and Black on his birthday at the Stade Omar Hammadi.

Opoku has scored two goals and provided two assists in his six start in all competitions for USM Alger in his maiden season.

He made his debut for the senior national team of Ghana in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa.
