Controversial Ghanaian football administrator Alhaji Grusah has claimed giants Asante Kotoko stand accused of being the first club to play fixed matches in Ghana.
The King Faisal owner and bankroller has fingered his city-rivals in a match-fixing scumbag and insisted the Ghana Premier League title record-winners have not fought for the interest of other city clubs.
Grusah placed an unsolicited call into Kessben FM’s Midfield Action show on Friday morning when extensive details were given about the rise and fall of Kum Apem Stars.
The outspoken administrator, who contested for a seat in the Ghana Football Association Executive Council in 2019, jabbed Kotoko for contributing to the ‘dying’ of clubs like Cornerstones and Kum Apem Stars.
“Kotoko were the first team in Ghana to play a fixed match,” he told Joe Laka.
“In 1958, Cornerstones were in pole position to win the league but Hearts were also in hot contention. Cornerstones had to beat Kotoko to win it. But Kotoko did everything possible to beat Cornerstones to enjoy that they lose out on the title,” he concluded.
As to whether Kotoko won the game by fair or foul means Grusah failed to provide the proof or touch on that point during his comments on the show.
