Accra - The head of the Ghana Football Association says he has reported top-flight players to law enforcement agencies for investigation following allegations that they were betting on their own team to lose.

GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi said that the allegations were "a very dangerous development in Ghana's football."

The coach of a Ghana Premier League team accused his players of betting on their club to lose at the weekend, insinuating that players deliberately lost the match in question.
