Betting scandals crippling Ghana Premier League – Great Olympics coach Annor Walker

Great Olympics head coach, Annor Walker has attributed the unattractiveness and the poor patronage of the Ghana Premier League (GPL) to the widespread alleged betting scandals.

The topflight under the current leadership has been engulfed with betting scandals.

According to the CAF license A holder, the league was not used to betting but some individuals now bet before games making the league unattractive.

“Our football is no more attractive. We never used to hear of betting, but now some people plan bets before their games”, he told Kumasi based Hello FM.

“I’ve always said that if anyone calls me for such a thing, I will let the police arrest him or her,” he added.

The 61-year-old tactician is regarded as one of the finest technical brains in Ghana, having served as the assistant coach and head coach of Nania FC from 2005 to 2011.

Under his wings, he guided them to the MTN FA Cup win in 2011 beating giants Kumasi Asante Kotoko 1–0 in the final to win their first major top silverware.

In February 2020, he landed his current role with Great Olympics and led the team to a 6th place finish in the 2020-2021 season.

He doubles as the head coach of the Black Stars B replacing Ibrahim Tanko.
