Former Black Stars player Kojo Poku ‘Mahala’ has made shocking revelations involving the players of the senior national team of Ghana and officials of the Ghana Football Association.

Kojo Poku in an interview with Happy FM said players have to pay bribes in different forms to get a call-up to represent Ghana in international football games.

The outspoken former Kotoko and King Faisal forward explain his point asking why Enock Adu Kofi has been kept out of the Black Stars team. He also made allegations of players going as far as paying school fees for some GFA officials in a bid to have a favour in return.

Kojo Poku told Happy FM:

“I think the fortunes of the Black Stars are dwindling and it’s because players have to pay bribes to officials to gain entry into the national team.

“Even though I’m no longer part of the team, most of the players are my friends and I speak with them. Isn’t it surprising that a player like Enoch Adu Kofi is playing regularly and featuring in the Champions League consistently but is not getting a look in at the Black Stars?

“I’m even aware that some players used to pay the school fees of some GFA officials so as to get a call-up to the national team.”

The Black Stars of Ghana were involved in two international games during the break from club football. Avram Grant’s men won by three goals to one against Mozambique in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game at the Accra Sports Stadium before earning a goalless draw against the same side in Maputo, Mozambique.
