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…
