Old Black Meteors coach, Malik Jabir, has revealed that he once rejected a $3,000 proposal from an official of the Ghana Football Association to choose 3 players into his group.
The legendary footballer informed Kumasi-FM that he turn down the bribe and asked that the players undergo the regular selection operation.
Malik Jabir says not a single of the 3 players made the cut for the competition the group was preparing for.
“I recall during my time as the Head Coach of the Black Meteors, a management member at that time brought in three players and offered me $3000 for me to take them into the team but I rejected the money and asked for an assessment of those players,” Malik Jabir disclosed.
“I remember after the assessment, the players were not fit enough for the team and therefore were dropped, “he said.
Malik Jabir was talking in relation to reviews of attempts by GFA officers to impact the selection of Black Stars coach, CK Akonnor.
Jabir told Akonnor to be fair and firm and repel any attempt by anybody to intervene in his works.
”C.K. Akonnor must be strong mentally and act as a coach to avoid influence from other people in order to achieve his goal,” he said.
The former Asante Kotoko star coached the Black Meteors between 2014 and 2015 and certified them for the 2015 African Games held in Congo Brazzaville.
