"I was offered $300,000 bribe at the World Cup"- Ghana Goalkeeper
A few days after denying that his wife is a witch on Facebook, Ghana's former goalkeeper has dropped another bombshell.
Goalkeeper Richard Kingson has claimed he rejected a $300,000 offer to throw a match when playing for Ghana at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
Kingson, 34, told the Synagogue Church of All Nations in Nigeria that the offer had been made before his team took on Czech Republic in the competition's group stages. He claimed the bribe was to ensure that the Czechs won 2-0 - but he had rejected it after his wife pleaded with him not to lose his dignity.
Ghana went on to win the match 2-0, with goals from Asamoah Gyan and Sulley Muntari.
