My ill health made me allege match-fixing in the just-ended Premier League- Commey
Albert Commey, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of AshantiGold, who accused his own club and others of fixing matches on the final weekend of the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League season has retracted and apologised.
In a statement he issued today, Thursday, June 30, 2022, he attributed the comments to his ill health.
He mentioned Hearts of Oak’s 4-1 loss to Real Tamale United in Accra, AshantiGold’s 2-2 draw with Bibiani Gold Stars, Eleven Wonders’ 2-0 win over Aduana Stars, and King Faisal’s 2-1 win against Legon Cities.
“The Ghana Premier League was competitive but [I] 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,” he told Sunyani-based 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 was summoned by the GFA a few days ago over the issue.
He has apologised to the clubs and retracted all the comments he made.
