Professor Oti Asirifi has taken a swipe at Ghanaian fans who attacked him on Ghanasoccernet.com following his prediction on the 2013 AFCON.
The University of Cape Coast numerology Professor predicted doom for Ghana by stating the four-time African champions cannot end their 31-year-old trophiless run in South Africa.
He revealed numerological events favour countries in Group C (Zambia, Nigeria, Burkina Faso and Ethiopia) to win the AFCON title.
True to his predictions, Burkina Faso eliminated Ghana to book in the grand finale date with Nigeria also from Group C.
After the Black Stars’ failures, the outspoken Professor feels vindicated.
“All the people who dissed and attacked me on Ghanasoccernet.com have now had me right,” he told Accra-based Happy FM.
Records from the competition show that with the exception of Cameroon, Egypt and Nigeria who won the competition in 1988, 1998 and 1994 respectively, all past winners have come from either Group A or C.
He also claimed numerological events favour Ghana to qualify for the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil.
“However, there is good news for Ghana – which is that the Black Stars will qualify for the World Cup. The Zambians are just making noise. Ghana will qualify ahead of them.”
