EXCLUSIVE: Mubarak Wakaso to terminate Panathinaikos contract over unpaid salary

But the Ghana international has confirmed he will not return to the Athens-based club due to their financial problems.

“Before I joined them [Panathinaikos],I spoke to Mike [Michael Essien] who told be the club was having some financial problems,” Wakaso told FootballMadeInGhana.com.

“But the club officials assured me I will have all what is due me paid and that is why I signed for them.

“Initially things were ok until they started skipping payment of my salary and then I had to start paying my own rent when it was the club that was supposed to pay.

“It was becoming too much and that is why I had to leave on loan and I don’t think I will go back.

“The contract will be terminated and I will be joining a new club soon.”

Wakaso arrived at Panathinakos from Rubin Kazan where the Ghanaian was being paid hefty amounts in wages.

His contract with the Greens was to run out in 2019.
