A registered football agent allegedly offered to "grease the palms" of match officials involved in games involving the Ghanaian national team.
Christopher Forsythe allegedly made the offer to undercover reporters working for Channel 4 and the Daily Telegraph who were posing as a company that wanted to "sponsor" Ghana friendly games.
"We will get the officials that we have greased their palms, so they will do it. If we bring in our own officials to do the match…You’re making your money,” Mr Forsythe is quoted as saying.
“We will always choose associations/countries that we think we can corrupt their officials for all our matches,” Mr Forsythe added.
He also reportedly claimed that corruption was "everywhere" in football and that "even in England" referees could be bribed into helping change the result of a game.
