Mr. Tapie revealed that he schemed with an official at AS Monaco in order to foster the false rumor that Abedi Pele was HIV+, something the former OS boss knew would quench Monaco's interest in the player.
Now Abedi Ayew Pele, in an interview with Kasapa FM, revealed that he was completely oblivious to the entire situation. According to him, Mr. Tapie, in his quest to secure his [Pele] signature may have crossed the line and gone too far.
“I was totally oblivious when it comes to that issue but he went too far. I feel he overstepped his boundaries if his real intention was to ward off competition from rivals.
