Former Ghana striker, Augustine Arhinful, has revealed that a former management member of the Black Stars demanded €20,000 from Elvis Manu before helping him to get a call-up.
Manu, who plays for Turkish side Akhisarspor, was born in Holland to Ghanaian parents and represented the Dutch at every junior level before switching his allegiance to play for the Black Stars.
Former Black Stars player Arhinful, however, failed to disclose the identity of the said management member.
As of June 2015, Manu can be called up to play for the Stars although these opportunities have been very limited.
Arhinful reportedly said: “Then Black Stars management committee member requested 20,000 euros from Ghanaian-Dutch Elvis Manu before he can wear the national team jersey"
He further urged on the technical team of the Black Stars to forget the building team mantra, rather act professionally ahead of winning the 2019 AFCON.
