Coach David Duncan

Former Hearts of Oak coach, David Duncan, says he has never accepted any form of bribe or gift in his line of duty throughout his career.

Duncan, who has been without a job since leaving Kumasi Asante Kotoko 2016, noted that he usually refused such favours because it could compromise him in doing his job effectively.

The experienced trainer told Accra-based Asempa FM in an interview on Thursday that, he did not indulge in unethical acts such as accepting gifts or bribes from players, or other forms of inducements from third parties, in order to offer players opportunities in his teams.

"I am clean because I have never taken a bribe or anything by way of gift in my coaching career because it might compromise me," he said confidently.

Coach Duncan was speaking on the current state of Ghana football after government secured an injunction to prevent the Ghana Football Association (GFA) from operating following an investigative work by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, which caught some referees and other officials of the football association allegedly accepting bribes or being induced to bend the rules in favour of their benefactors.

The decision by government has led to the suspension of the Ghana Premier League with government looking to dissolve the GFA.
