Our attention has been drawn to a publication by a Tunisian news portal that TP Mazembe officials offered to bribe Berekum Chelsea to influence the result of our game on Sunday.

We wish to state categorically that this report is utterly false.

We have not met any TP Mazembe official or officials let alone discuss the issuance of bribes or anything thereof.

We want to assure all Ghanaians, Berekum Chelsea fans and members African football fraternity that we will not desecrate the sanctity of our club and African football with such dubious acts.

We also want to warn the media to desist from spreading such false reports or we will be forced to take legal action to salvage our hard-earned reputation.

Nana Kwame Nketiah
Chief Executive Officer
Berekum Chelsea Football Club
