The Angolan Football Federation denied reports they had not paid the salary of new national coach Gustavo Ferrin while admitting some banking "transmission" problems.

The Uruguayan did not join the team's training camp in the southern city of Lubango after arriving in the oil-rich nation on Monday, sparking reports his salary had gone unpaid for months after similar hiccups with a former coach.

But the FAF told AFP Ferrin first had to meet with federation president Pedro Neto before flying out to the team's Africa Cup of Nations training on Tuesday.

"Gustavo Ferrin doesn't have a salary problem, nothing is going on," said the federation's vice-president Joao Lusevikueno.

"There were some problems between the banks during the transmission of his bank details but that's all."

Salary disputes arose with former national coach Frenchman Herve Renard. Renard has since then led Zambia's team to win the Africa Cup this year.
