King Faisal bankroller Alhaji Grusah has alleged that he paid a kickback of GHS650,000.00 to the Ghana Football Association from his $100,000 received for serving as a Black Stars management committee member at the 20222 World Cup.

During an interview on Asempa FM, Grusah asserted that he later received a reimbursement into his account upon discovering the funds were misappropriated.

The forthright football administrator has been embroiled in a public dispute with the Ghana football governing body, particularly revolving around matters concerning the 2023 GFA Election.

He explained, “They requested GHS650,000.00 from me, which they said would be shared among various football individuals. I transferred the funds to the GFA’s account.

“Subsequently, I learned that the money was not used for its intended purpose. I requested a refund, and they returned the money to my account. I possess evidence of this transaction, and it constitutes a kickback.”

Additionally, Grusah revealed that he has directed his legal team to commence contempt proceedings against GFA officials who ignored a high court injunction regarding the election process.
