Ghana FA president rejects fix claims

Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi has moved to deny claims of agreeing to allow Ghana to play in matches targeted by fixers, the BBC has reported, and has also called for investigations into the allegations.



An investigation by Channel 4 and the Daily Telegraph brought about the allegations, but these have been strongly denied by Nyantakyi.


He stated: “The contents of the publication are not wholly true. I have not agreed to any match-fixing deal involving the FA.


“I was given a draft contract which I indicated to their agent that I hadn't read and I also had some issues with it and so it will be premature for anybody to say the FA is at fault.”


The undercover investigation revealed two people preparing to fix matches involving the Ghanaian national side – one a licensed agent of world governing body FIFA and the other a Ghana club official.


However none of their matches at the World Cup are thought to have been under target, but instead two proposed friendlies after the tournament.


After news broke of the serious allegations the GFA moved to call for police to investigate the two involved, claiming they were misrepresenting the GFA.


The matter has been reported to FIFA and the Confederation of African Football.


A statement from the GFA read: “The Ghana Football Association has requested the Ghana Police Service to investigate two persons for misrepresenting the GFA with an attempt to defraud.


“The two were also allegedly filmed claiming that they would bribe GFA officials to ensure that the contract is signed.


“We wish to state that the GFA did not sign the contract as we waited for the response from the legal committee and that the two gentlemen did not make such corrupt offers to the GFA or its officials.”


Ghana so far have drawn and lost their opening two games at the World Cup, but could still qualify with a win over Portugal and a swing in goal difference in their favour.
