The president of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi has said that the FA will investigate allegations leveled against Brong Ahafo United players that they are involved in online betting in the First Capital Plus Bank premier league matches.
Former coach of B.A United, Mohammed Gargo, who was sacked On Tuesday after only one match in charge of the club revealed after his first and only match in charge that the poor form of the club in the Ghana Premier League is not a ‘technical problem’ but because the players bet against the club.
The allegations sparked lots of controversy in the football community in Ghana, and the GFA have taken steps to curb the canker before it escalates beyond imagination.
“Betting is a dangerous development that has recently crept into the body fabric of football administration in Ghana,” Nyantakyi said at a press conference on Tuesday
“I personally received reports from some of my colleagues who are in the Executive Committee and other well-meaning people running football.
“We have taken the necessary steps to arrest this canker which we think if we don’t confront it at this stage it may go beyond our imagination. So the security agencies have been notified to do the necessary investigation, and then bring the all culprits involved to book.”
