Alhaji Grusah has refuted claims that each Black Stars management committee member paid $100,000 as an appearance fee for Ghana’s participation in the 2022 World Cup.
He proceeded to heap curses on the journalist who first brought this discussion into the public domain for which he and other committee members purpotedly came under fire from Ghanaians
“Whoever told that lie will never have peace for the rest of their lives,” Grusah said as quoted by Footballghana.com
“I was asked a question by the presenter if we received $100k as appearance fees and I asked back if it is wrong for BS MC members to receive that money. Was that to confirm that we took $100k? In any case, I went on to add that we never received anything as appearance fees. So why will someone say I said we took $100k?
“Please I never said that. We will cherish it if the government will reward us for steering the nation to the World Cup but we have not received any $100k. I’m always available, anyone who wants the truth can call me to confirm.”
Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association communications director Henry Asante Twum disclosed that they received $9.5 million from FIFA.
