Ghana’s quest to break the over more than 40 years African Cup of Nations trophy drought has come to a painful end as they lost to the Coelacanths of Comoros.
After a hard fought game, the Stars lost by three goals to two, against Comoros, with skipper, Andrew Dede Ayew, receiving a red card in the opening exchanges of the game.
Per the results, the Black Stars have been evicted from the ongoing tournament in Cameroon.
Some Ghanaians, who are obviously not happy at the turn of events, have taken to Twitter to express their anger.
One man, who is neither a footballer nor has any role to play in the management of Ghana’s football, has come under criticism for the abysmal performance of the players.
Scores of Twitter users say that the disappointing performance of the Black Stars in the 2021 African Cup of Nations, can be attributed to the exposé by ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Titled ‘Number 12’, the video documentary exposed bribery and corruption activities on the part of Ghana football officials and referees, a scandal which led to the collapse of the Kwesi Nyantakyi-led Ghana Football Association administration.
Below are some tweets:
Kwesi Nyantakyi was really the backbone of the Black Stars herh.
We all can agree that Anas’ investigation was needless. See how we dey suffer

Anas exposed the corruption in our football system which gave us a second chance to do better but we dwindled as a country and it’s evident in Blackstars’ performance

Kwesi Nyantakyi would’ve secured Ghana a semi finals qualification for the black stars even before the tournament had started. God will punish Anas where ever he is. 🤦🏽♂️

Sometimes, I blame Anas for destroying our football. A very selfish documentary to fill his pocket and destroy our country. #TeamGhana

We’re all blaming Anas for the misfortunes of the black stars right? No one forced him to expose Nyantakyi.

Dear Anas, please use your exposé to help Black Stars qualify….siasem akwakwa.
Your main man

We are not going to act as if we were winning trophies left and right before Anas’ number 12. https://t.co/D4CkHGFqMa

Nyantakyi’s reign was largely poor and Kurt’s is piss poor thus far, both can exist. Nyantakyi needed to go but we had the opportunity to make some changes and we failed and that’s not on Anas.

Was never fully in support of what Anas did to Nyantakyi. I ‘hear’ there’s a course in MBA that talks about the advantages of corruption.
Kwasi Nyantakyi was good for the Blackstars, he knew what to do and how to do it .
Look at the current management: worse off!
