“They (club officials) engage in bets. Several officials are involved, I know what I am saying,” he claimed on Asempa FM
“If the ethics committee invites me, I will come and explain to them. What they (bettors) are doing is destroying our game.
“We are all pretending not to be aware but we all know club officials are involved in this trade.” – Mr. Owusu further stated
The GFA have already begun investigations into the alleged case of match-fixing and association with a betting scandal with regards to the Ashgold-Inter Allies game.
