Asante Kotoko, a powerhouse club in Ghana, stands to gain from FIFA’s goodwill after defender Danlad Ibrahim was called up to the Black Stars in the nick of time for the next World Cup in Qatar.
Jojo Wollacot and Richard Ofori, the Black Stars’ goalkeeping tandem, have been ruled out of the competition only seven days before the commencement of the mundial in Asia.
Because of this, Ghana’s national team coach Otto Addo has called up a former goalie from the Ghana U-20 team to compete.
On Monday, November 14 at 11 a.m., Ghana’s head coach Otto Addo will announce his final roster of 26 players.
When the winter’s FIFA World Cup is held in Qatar, the governing body of the sport will hand out more than $200 million to the clubs whose players are competing.
As expected, the sport’s international governing body announced the specifics of its club benefits plan, including the $209 million that has been allocated for the program.
According to FIFA’s projections, each player will get $10,000 for each day he stays with his national team at the World Cup.
Since this is Danlad Ibrahim’s first time playing in the World Cup, his presence will bring Asante Kotoko a daily income of $10,000.
Super Obondede, a well-known sports journalist from Light Fm, has responded by saying that the call-up of the Danlad Black Stars would net Asante Kotoko a minimum of $120,000.
As a result, Super Obondede has urged Nana Yaw Amponsah, CEO of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, to invest the $120,000 the will receive from Danlad Black Stars’ call-up to brief up the club’s current roster.
