Host of Accra Fm’s mid-morning show (Ayekoo Ayekoo), Nana Romeo has blamed Anas Aremeyaw Anas for the Black Star’s failure at the 2021 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) and other related copetitions.
If you may recall, in the year 2018, Ghanaian investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas did an expose on Ghana sports, uncovering the bad acts some match officials and other stakeholders do in Ghana football.
Nana Romeo on Accra Fm today stated that, after the Anas expose , Ghana football has never been as it was and so he sees the ace journalist is part of the downfall on Ghana football.
He said this following the poor performance of the Black Stars in the ongoing AFCON in Cameroon.
”From the time Ana expose came, Ghana football has gone down, when Ghana meets any other country and play, referees make sure they rule any fifty fifty ball against us. Because if we have journalist here in Ghana who has his job to expose referees then they will also show us.
So for Ghana, we have a long way to go. Now Anas is asleep and Black Stars are suffering.
We are in this country, football is gambling, 3y3 chacha, so whether you like it or not ways and means is in. Even in overseas it’s in. They take into their socks every day”, Nana Romeo said.
He continued to aske that, if football is not gambling, why then will FIFA allow betting companies come in and also sponsor?
”Because if football is not gambling, why then did FIFA allow betting companies to come in and also sponsor? So it means that, even the FIFA knows there’s gambling in football, it’s gambling”. He added.
Meanwhile, the Black Stars is out of the the tournament and is expected to come home.
