Former Dreams FC and Hearts of Oak manager, C.K Akunnor has thrown his weight behind government’s decision to cleanse football in Ghana following the rot that was uncovered by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Following the exposé, over 77 referees were caught on camera accepting bribes to influence Ghana Premier League results, leading to an indefinite suspension on all football-related activities.
Government has taken steps to dissolve the Ghana Football Association after the airing of the documentary at the Accra International Conference Centre.
However, it’s now unclear when the second half of the top-flight season will resume.
“There should be a clean up because of its a mess now.
“I hope the authorities will look into it deeply and try to organise quickly.
“Administrators and club owners are paying money and its disturbing.
“I hope a decision will soon be taken as early as possible so players and fans can enjoy their football,” he told Citi Sports in an interview.
Dr Kofi Amoah and technical director of the Ghana Football Association, Oti Akenteng has been tasked to lead the reform of football in the country.
