Bashir Hayford, head coach of AshantiGold SC has promised to sue some selected radio stations and presenters for reports he described as ‘malicious attempts to destroy’ his reputation.
The former Asante Kotoko and Medeama SC boss was accused of having an intimate relationship with one of his players ex-girlfriend, and that resulted in alleged mutiny in camp which hampered their Premier League performances.
And Coach Hayford has promised to fight back.
“Some of you and your radio stations will hear from me soon. Someone made allegations against me and you couldn’t do due diligence before taking it on air. I am heading to court and the judge will question you whether you did diligence before destroying somebody,” livid Bashir Hayford said after their game with Inter Allies at Tema.
“When we started the league, we won the first match against Medeama, we drew the second match against Kotoko we drew at home (against Berekum Chelsea), we went to Hasaacas and drew and nobody heard that I was a womanizer.
“No body heard it. It was when Dreams FC came and scored us and supporters who are miners came and made allegations they can’t substantiate.
“Nobody did due diligence to see whether what they were saying were true, but the media picked it up and it came on air. Why do you stop fire with fire? You have to stop and allow the fire to burn. Now the fire has burnt with all the speed you wanted it,” he said.
“Now you’ve seen the snail, millipede, lizard, snakes dead in the devil’s bush and some of you don’t have the guts to report the truth or even come and say what we heard was not true. So I have selected radio stations and some selected presenters to start with.
“When you go and meet the judge, tell him I heard it and the judge will question you. This time, some of you are going to pay heavily,” he stated.
