Ghanaian footballer, Michael Essien has said he and his other colleagues, Sulley Muntari & Kevin Prince Boateng, feel vindicated over the Anas #12 expose which has led to the collapse of the Ghana Football Association.
According the former Chelsea midfielder, they were made scapegoats in the 2014 World Cup controversy in Brazil — but thanks to Anas #12 investigative piece Ghanaians now know who the real demons were.
“Ghanaians will now understand the reasons why that incident happened in Brazil by virtue of what is going on currently in our football,” Essien told Adom FM in an interview.
“It will be very wrong for anyone to criticize me, Sulley Muntari and Kevin Prince Boateng for all that happened during the World Cup.”
In the interview he also praised his close friend Muntari, describing him as a ‘good person’ who likes to voice out whenever things don’t go well in the team.
“Muntari, in particular, is a very good person and I have known him since our childhood days,” he said.
“He is not someone who keeps quiet on issues like me, so he always voices out when he thinks that things will affect the team as a whole and not himself. Everything is clear now how issues were handled in the past by the leaders of the football.”
