Kwesi Nyantakyi insists he will carry out his threat of suing the Telegraph

The Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi has mocked the Daily Telegraph over their supposed under-cover report on match fixing as a ‘cut-and-paste job’, warning that he will carry out his threat of suing the the London newspaper over the allegations levelled against him.

The Daily Telegraph produced an undercover report last week, in which they staged a set-up with the Ghana FA, in which they expose the football officials as match-fixers.

But Ghana FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi is having none of it – he says it was all a set-up, and that at no point on the Daily Telegraphs’ video do they mention the concept of, or word ‘matchfixing’.

Nyantakyi says it was a crude and defamatory ‘cut and paste’ job from the Telegraph, cooked and edited to their whims to make the Ghana FA and Ghanaian football generally look bad.

The Ghana football chief is so confident in his innocence that he’s decided to take legal action – and is going to sue the Daily Telegraph for what he deems to have been manipulative malpractice.

Interesting to see if the Telegraph can produce further and clearer footage of the meeting…

    So I dont understand why Ghanaian leaders of all levels, especially Nantakyi and the GFA, always think that what the majority stand isn’t important; however, they will play a status quote position so that they’ll keep their jobs.

    Nantakyi and Akwasi Appiah, hear me out loud and clear: a CHANGE AT THE GFA AS WELL AS FOR BLACK STARTS POSSIBLE IF YOU AND AKWASI APPIAH CONTINUE TO HOLD YOUR POSITIONS.

    THE ONLY WAY THAT AKWASI APPIAH AND YOU COULD BE FORGIVEN BY GHANAIANS IS TO ALSO FORGIVE THE PLAYERS. YOU ARE ALL IN THE MESS AND MUST STEP DOWN IMMEDIATELY. GHANAIANS LOVE OUR PLAYERS AND YOU CANNOT PUNISH THEM BECAUSE YOU’VE FAILED TOTALLY.

    IT IS CLEAR THAT AKWASI APPIAH IS NOT A COACH. HE SHOULD FIND SOME TEAM IN GHANA TO COACH AND NOT THE BLACK STARS. I BELIEVE THAT MAXWELL KONADU COULD HAVE DONE A BETTER THAN HIM.

    NO MORE AKWASI APPIAH!!!!
