Former Ashantigold Sporting Club player, Amos Addae says he is disappointed in the Ghana Football Association for initially suspending players allegedly involved in match fixing.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned all punishments imposed by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) on the players involved in the alleged match-fixing game between Inter Allies and AshantiGold SC.

Some 21 players were sanctioned by the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana FA as they were said to have been found guilty of manipulating the results of the match day 34 encounter of a Ghana Premier League game two seasons ago.

Asked about how the suspension affected him, the captain on the day for Ashantigold in the game against Inter Allies says he is unhappy about the decision taken by the GFA initially because it affected most players negatively.

“I sometimes get disappointed at the GFA. Players in the Ghana Premier League are not paid well and suspending the players affected them. How were they going to feed their family?” He told Adom FM.

He revealed that he is currently in the United Kingdom trying to start from the scratch with the help of his wife.

“If not for the help of my wife in the UK, how would I have fed the family? Life here is difficult. The amount of money spent on renting an apartment for a month in the UK can be used at a 5 star hotel in Ghana for seven months”. He said.

” Our leaders need to sometimes take their time in taking decisions. One player who was suspended had a contract in Serbia but he came back due to the suspension tag placed on him”. He added.

Amos Addae played 50 games for Ashantigold Sporting Club in the Ghana Premier League and scored 9 goals.
