Ashantigold coach Thomas Duah banned 2 years over match-fixing scandal

Ashantigold coach Thomas Duah has been slapped with a two-year ban by the Ghana Football Association Disciplinary Committee over match-fixing scandal.

Last year, an unfortunate incident happened when Ashantigold and Inter Allies clashed in the final round of the Ghana Premier League campaign.

Hashim Musah, who is an Inter Allies centre-back confessed to scoring the two intentional own goals during the clash against Ashanti Gold.

Musah came off the bench and scored two own goals in the final 12 minutes, leaving Inter Allies 7-0 down.

The defender claims he netted the two goals on purpose because he believes the score had been agreed in advance for betting purposes.

This has resulted to the demotion of Ashantigold to the Ghanaian third-tier league whereas some players and officials of the club have been banned.

Meanwhile, Ashantigold gaffer Thomas Duah has been slashed with a 24-months ban in accordance with Article 34.5(d)(i) of the Ghana Premier League Regulations 2019.
