The revelation has raised several concerns at the Ghana FA with Executive Committee member Wilfred Osei (Parma) demanding a full disclosure of the ‘conspiracy’.
And Nyantakyi who was a year into his fresh administration during the World Cup appears to be in favour of a move to gather more facts on the potential scandal.
“I also heard it (Kingston’s revelation) through the media and I don’t know whether it is true,” Nyantakyi told GHANAsoccernet.com.
“As it is now, it is still a rumour. The matter has not been officially brought before us but we will probe further to see whether it is even true then we will advice ourselves of what to do.
