Asante Kotoko coach, Mariano Barreto is calling on the country’s football governing body, to as a matter of urgency investigate the allegations of match-fixing in the Ghana Premier League.
There have been countless allegations of match-fixing in the top-flight and the lower league and the former Black Stars gaffer wants the matter seriously investigated to bring sanity in the game.
With the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League set to be wrapped up this weekend, allegations of match-fixing dominated the headlines and the local media.
According to the Portuguese manager, he feels ashamed about the allegations of match-fixing in the country.
“People before and after games talk about fixing the matches and that makes me ashamed,” he told Kumasi based Nhyira FM.
“Authorities must investigate these things,” he added.
Meanwhile, Barreto’s side will play their final game of the 2021/22 campaign against relegation threatening side Elmina Sharks at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium on Sunday.
