Stay away from football - Asamoah Gyan to politicians

Ghana captain, Asamoah Gyan has called on politicians to stay away from football.

Football activities is currently on hold in Ghana following Anas Aremeyaw Anas video dubbed ‘Number 12.’

Several Football officials were captured on tape taking bribes to influence the player selection and to change the outcome of football matches.

The government have taken steps to dissolve the FA by securing a 10-day injunction to stop football-related activities.

With Government’s move, clubs owners have started feeling the heat, and they have been calling on Government to be a little bit soft.

“I have said it and I will say it again; football and politics cannot work,” he said.

“This is all I can say for now but for sure football and politics is a no.”

Government has since started talks with FIFA in ensuring Ghana is not banned from football.
