Ms Akua Sena Dansua, Minister of Youth and Sports has admitted that some of the national teams are owed outstanding bonuses.

Ms Dansua who said this at an interaction with the media on Tuesday said that her outfit is working in collaboration with Government to offset the bills of the other national teams.

On the Black Stars, the Minister said the players were presented with their cheques in Dubai, during the international friendly against Saudi Arabia last month.
Meanwhile GNA Sports’ sources indicate that the Black Queens, Black Princesses, Black Starlets and Black Satellites have outstanding bonuses for their involvements during the year.
