Former Ghana U23 head coach Malik Jabir has made a shocking revelation that he once rejected a $3000 bribe from a management member in an attempt to fix his three players in the team.
The former Ghana and Asante Kotoko star coached the Black Meteors- [Olympic team] between 2014 and 2015 and qualified them for the 2015 African Games held in Congo Brazzaville.
This was revealed during an interview with Kumasi FM when he was advising Black Stars coach Charles Akonnor to be strong and not to allow the country’s football governing body’s top hierarchy to influence his call-ups.
”C K AKONNOR must be strong mentally and act as a coach to avoid influence from other people in order to achieve his goal,” he said.
“I recall during my time as the Head Coach of the Black Meteors, a management member at that time brought in three players and offered me $3000 for me to take them into the team but I rejected the money and asked for an assessment of those players,” Malik Jabir revealed.
“I remember after the assessment, the players were not fit enough for the team and therefore were dropped.
