Chief Executive Officer of Ashantigold Emmanuel Frimpong says there was nothing like match manipulation in their clash against Inter Allies last season.
Frimpong has been banned for 8-years after investigations revealed that the Ghana Premier League match between Ashantigold and Inter Allies was fixed.
The Miners won 7-0, with Inter Allies’ Hashim Musah scoring two intentional own goals.
Both teams have been relegated to Division Two and fined 100,000 Ghana cedis each.
Speaking to Kumasi-based Akoma FM, the embattled CEO stated emphatically their clash against Inter Allies was not fixed as purported to be.
“I hear people saying GPL teams fix games but I don’t know why people taught we fixed our game against Inter Allies last season”
“We beat WAFA, Aduana and King Faisal by heavy scorelines but people never tagged these games as ” fixed matches”
“Some people have been trying to sabotage us since we took over the club. They feel they are the right people to lead the club”
“There was nothing like match manipulation, we could have beaten Inter Allies 9-0 in that game, when I saw the player (Hashmin Musah) scoring those 2 own goals, I was extremely surprised” he said.
