Captain of Inter Allies Football Club Hashim Musah has explained his decision to deliberately score two own goals in their game against Ashantigold in the last match of the Ghana Premier League (GPL).
Speaking in an interview with Kumasi FM, Musah, who is a devout Muslim said it was his intention to spoil the bet for those who engaged in it because he does not condone betting.
Captain of Inter Allies scored an incredible two own goals to take the tally to 7-0 in the most shocking manner which has sparked outrage in the West African nation.
He revealed that he scored the two own goals to “spoil the bet” of a correct scoreline Ashantgold had staked.
“I heard it in our hotel that there was a correct scoreline of five goals to one against my club Inter Allies. I decided to spoil that bet because I don’t condone betting.
“After the game, my technical team commended me for spoiling the bet they had staked.
“I promised my coach that if he allows me to play from the bench I will spoil the bet and after the game my team congratulated me,” he added.
Ashantigold thrashed relegated Inter Allies 7-0 at the Len Clay Stadium on Sunday in the final game of the Ghana Premier League.
After the game, a shred of video evidence emerged on Monday to point to a clear case of match-fixing which has rocked the integrity of the 2020-21 season.
