Mohammed Gargo has attributed Brong Ahafo United’s run of poor results to their players’ involvement in betting activities.
The ex-Ghana international took charge of the team following the resignation of Frimpong Manso who guided them to secure a qualification back into the Ghana Premier League after 10 years in the ‘wilderness’ of Ghana football.
However, Gargo after his first game that resulted in a home defeat in the hands of Wa All Stars, believes the playing body of B.A United are the once behind the dwindling fortunes of the club by fixing matches to go in favour of their bets and, thus, will consider whether continuing with his job or not in the next couple of days.
“What is happening here I don’t think is a technical problem; there is a lot that one needs to really find out. I am very disappointed with the players’ attitude towards this match, although we had one training session, I did everything to ensure a win,” he said in a post match interview.
“Some of the club’s key supporters came to tell me that the players have been partaking in football betting with Safari and the likes and they even do it to let the team lose, which in a way confirms the rumours going around and in such a situation there is nothing that one could do.
“I have to think twice about it, whether I will continue here or not because what is actually going on here is killing football. I don’t want to be part of a losing team,” he added.
B.A United a lying bottom of the league table with 7 points in 10 games.
