Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
After videos emerged from the match day 34 Ghana premier league fixture between AshantiGold and Inter Allies, fans have taken to social media to express their displeasure.
Inter Allies who were already relegated were beaten 7-0 by AshGold at the Obuasi Len Clay stadium.
Allegations popped up when Inter Allies defender, Hashim Musah, admitted to scoring two own goals after hearing that there was a bet placed on the match.
"I heard it in our hotel that there was a correct score line of 5 goals to 1 against my club inter allies. I decided to spoil that bet because I don't condone betting," the player said.
After the revelation, fans have taken to their social media accounts to express their displeasure over the situation.
Renowned sports journalist Saddick Adams posted a video of the third goal with the comment:
“Ashgold's 3rd goal is cruel. Ghana Premier League. This is an embarrassment”
"After watching this nonsense, why will I be interested in watching Ghana Premier League?? Just watch"
@SkillionZ05 compares it to Ghana cinema hub Kumawood.
"More than Kumawood movie #FixGPL"
"Look at the match fixing in our league. We were talking about bringing back the love some few weeks ago, now look at this. #FixGPL"
"Everything about GPL is dirty and unattractive. Herh match fixing paa ni3 Face with tears of joy #FixGPL"
@MrAkonto wanted AshantiGold relegated
"Ashanti Gold should be relegated from the GPL by the GFA and the club's sponsor which is betway should also be banned from sponsoring any team and remove the option on betting on Ghana Premier League from their site. #FixGPL #fixedmatches"
@bright_aweh who is clearly not a Phobian had this to say
“Hearts of Oak should return the trophy to GFA for us to replay the league matches. Its now clear the league wasn't won genuinely.”
