Attempted bribery of Stars’ Asst. Coach?

SpprtrEX-KOTOKO chief scout Ebenezer Sefah has launched a stinging potshot at Abraham Boakye, claiming the GHANSU president attempted to solicit bribe from Black Stars assistant coach Maxwell Konadu to wage a campaign for him.

The damning revelation comes on the heels of demand from Abraham Boakye, affectionately called ‘One man supporter’, to have Maxwell Konadu sacked as Black Stars assistant coach.

“He requested for money to wage a campaign for Maxwell to be named substantive Black Stars coach but he flatly refused.

“He (Boakye) tried to use me to influence Maxwell but it didn’t work. The kind of things he’s saying now are not genuine but borne out of a deal simply gone bad.

“He’s no saint and he can take me on if he thinks what I’m saying is untrue. I am ready for him. He’s sinking.”

The Ghana FA has confirmed the former Under-20 caretaker coach will deputize for the Israeli during his two and half year stay with the Black
