Yusif Abubakar makes demands after Aduana sacking

Yusif Abubakar is demanding the payment of all of his entitlements upon his sacking from Aduana Stars.

The former Medeama coach was shockingly fired by the Dormaa-based club on Tuesday.

Aduana have since appointed Kenichi Yatsuhashi as his replacement.

Abubakar is however demanding the settling of all his outstanding entitlements which includes three months salary, per diem owed him on his travels with the side in their African campaign and fuel allowance.

“I believe it is only fair that following such a decision [Abubakar’s sacking] Aduana does the proper thing and settles the coach,” a source close to the former Hearts of Oak trainer told

“He was promised fuel allowance but for over a year now, that promise has not been honoured.

“Even where he stayed in Dormaa was full of issues.”

Abubakar was reportedly fired by Aduana for covertly holding talks over a return to Hearts of Oak but the coach vehemently denies this.

“I have so much respect for Aduana so I have nothing bad to say about them,” he told Kessben FM.

“But it is not true that is because I was joining Hearts. As of now, I have not signed any paper nor held talks with any official of Hearts.”
