‘GFA have wasted our lives for nothing’ – Thomas Duah
Ashantigold SC head coach, Thomas Duah, believes the Ghana Football Association had made a significant mistake after handing them various sanctions due to their participation in a match-fixing scandal with Inter Allies which he termed as a waste of time, effort, or opportunities for the club.
The two sides played out a 7-0 match in favour of Ashantigold at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium in the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League, which the GFA DC ruled as a match of convenience.
Both teams were expelled from the Ghana Premier League and demoted to the Division Two League while some players were banned for various time lengths.
The bans on the players have since been overturned by CAS.
Reacting to the CAS verdict, Duah claimed he didn’t he see the document of the ruling to think about appealing the decision.
“What the GFA and their Secretary have done to us is very painful. If I were Isaac Opoku Agyemang who was on the verge of moving to Europe prior to the verdict, I would have cursed the FA and the Secretary,” he said.
“I actually don’t know the FA Secretary personally. But he is the one who has been at the forefront of our issue. They have wasted our lives for nothing. I never received any verdict or document about the issue so I didn’t even know how to seek redress regarding the verdict on me.”
He expressed his discontent in an interview with Akoma FM.
