Meanwhile the Premier League clubs will hold the GFA accountable,” Patrick Akoto, Premier League Clubs Spokesman told Accra-based Angel FM.
It was announced that all 18 clubs have agreed to accept the monies that was allocated them but owner of King Faisal Alhaji Grunzah has debunked the report.
“It is never true we the premier league clubs have accepted the $15,000 from the Ghana FA, they told us they will look the matters and concerns we raised and get back to us,”
He however revealed that: “I suggested the Ghana FA gives we the GPL clubs between the range of $25,000-$30,000 from the FIFA Covid-19 Relief fund." he added.
