GFA denies paying bribes for 2014 WC qualification

The Ghana Football Association has in a strongly worded statement denied allegations of bribery levelled against it in the media.

Reports in the media have accused the FA of paying bribes to qualify for the 2014 World Cup.

But the GFA in its statement described the report as “palpably false”.

According to the association, it does not have the funds to pay the huge bribes its alleged of paying for football matches.

We wish to state emphatically that the report is palpably false and that the GFA or the Government of Ghana does not have budgets for bribes or condone bribery in any form.”

“Such utterly wrong suggestion denigrates the hard work and achievements of the Black Stars players culminating in the historic and indisputable 7-3 aggregate victory over Egypt that secured Ghana’s place at the World Cup,” the statement said.

Reports in certain quarters of the media suggest that the Black Stars bribed its way to the Brazil showpiece.
