A former member of Ghana's coaching team has ended his hotel sit-in after its football association paid him money that he was owed.

Gerard Nus had refused to leave since the start of last month, until his bonuses were settled.

He was part of former Chelsea boss Avram Grant's staff at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

Grant resigned after the Black Stars were eliminated at the semi final stage by eventual champions Cameroon. 

In a statement, the Ghana FA says it paid him on Saturday having finally been able to get the money together.

They said: "The Ghana Football Association (GFA) finally managed to raise the funds to the pay Black Stars assistant video analyst Gerard Nus all his outstanding bonuses on Saturday.

"The move to find the money to pay him on a weekend is the intrinsic desire by the GFA to see him paid so he can return to his family in Spain as soon as possible.

"The GFA also provided Mr Nus with the air ticket to ensure that he leaves on Saturday night."
