Issues of match-fixing in the Ghana Premier League keep popping up frequently. It seems it won't be going away anytime soon. Teams are being accused of fixing their matches for various reasons. The latest in these accusations was the one made by Albert Commey, the deputy chief executive of Ashanti Gold. He listed several matches on the final day of the season he believes was fixed including one involving his team Ashanti Gold. He has been invited by the GFA to help unravel the mysteries behind these fixed matches.
He said "Ghana Premier League was competitive but wasn't happy with the final day because there were lots of fixed games. RTU never won any match away. AshGold v Bibiani Gold Stars was fixed. Wonders v Aduana was fixed. King Faisal vs Legon Cities was fixed," Commey reportedly said on Space FM. Normally when it gets to that time, clubs want to survive. FA doesn't know about it.
How do you think Hearts of Oak will lose by four goals? Did you watch them yesterday? We shouldn't be hypocrites or we won't progress. I'm a Hearts fan, I'm telling you", he said on Space FM.
If these issues keep coming up, our football won't go anywhere.
