The Inshallah Boys needed a win at all cost on final day of the season to survive relegation scares
Former director of communications for Hearts of Oak and deputy CEO of AshantiGold Albert Commey has made damning accusations against several Ghana Premier League clubs.
According to Commey, the game between King Faisal and Legon Cities, Hearts of Oak vs Real Tamale United, Bibiani Gold Stars vs Ashanti Gold and Techiman Eleven Wonders vs Aduana Stars were all fixed.
King Faisal pipped Legon 2-1 to survive relegation while Yaw Annor scored two goals for Ashanti Gold against Gold Stars to win the Premier League topscorer’s award.
Also, RTU surprisingly whipped Hearts of Oak 4-1 at the Accra Sports Stadium to avoid relegation. As a result, WAFA, Eleven Wonders and Elmina Sharks were relegated to Division One League.
“The 2021/22 League season was competitive. I honestly didn’t like the way and manner the last round of games were played, because there were a lot of fixed matches,” Mr. Commey said on Sunyani -based Space FM.
“The matches between Bibiani Gold Stars and Ashgold was a fixed match, Techiman wonders vs Aduana Stars was a Fixed match, King Faisal vs Legon Cities was a fixed match and lastly Hearts vs RTU was also a fixed match.”
“Let us not be hypocrites or else we wouldn’t move forward in Ghana football. I won’t blame the GFA on this, because teams do everything possible to stay in the league during the latter part of the league,” he added.
Hearts of Oak, Aduana Stars and Gold Stars have officially demanded an apology from Commey and also referred his conduct to Ghana FA.
Meanwhile, Ghana FA has invited Commey to the Ethics Committee and he is expected to meet them on July 9 at 2pm.
