Kotoko and King Faisal played a fixed match – Ebusua Dwarfs coach Kuuku Dadzie
Ebusua Dwarfs coach James Kuuku Dadzie has made a huge match-fixing allegation against Asante Kotoko and King Faisal.
The 1978 AFCON-winning Ghana defender also reveals in an interview that officials of Asante Kotoko approached him to ensure his side defeat Hearts of Oak in their matchday 32 clash at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
Dadzie, who was appointed to the role of Dwarfs head coach barely three weeks ago following the resignation of Ernest Quartey Thompson, claims the matchday 32 game involving Kotoko and King Faisal at the Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi was fixed.
The former defender has been quoted by Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM for claiming that Kotoko and Faisal deliberately fixed the result of their game in order to ensure Faisal avoid relegation from the Premier League.
“King Faisal has been buying matches. Playing against Kotoko, they bought the match. We know it. I insist they bought the match. Kotoko against King Faisal was a fixed match. Kotoko came to us promising us to beat Hearts I am telling you for a fact,” he reportedly told Mynd FM.
The match involving Kotoko and King Faisal ended 1-1 after striker Andy Kumi came off the bench to score a goal that cancelled out a 12th minute goal scored by Ibrahim Zuberu.
