Tema Youth owner Wilfred Kwaku Osei ‘Palmer’ has vowed to quit football if he is found guilty of influencing player selections into national teams of Ghana.

The former Black Stars management committee chairman made allegations Tuesday that Ghana FA officials have been influencing player selections into Black Stars and other national team call-ups.

Pundits of the game and a section  of Ghanaians have fingered the disappointed Ghana FA presidential aspirant in such acts, but Palmer insists his players who earned call-ups deserved it

“If any coach or agent is able to say that I accepted any money or gift to influence a player’s inclusion to the various national team, I will quit doing football business in Ghana. I dare any coach or player to come out today,” Palmer told FOX FM.

“Everyone know the kind of person I am and even when someone at a point approached me to help his player’s inclusion to a national team while I was in charge of the management committee, I blatantly told the person it is not possible because it is against my principles.

“Every player from Tema Youth that got the opportunity to feature for national team deserved it. They got the chance on merit to represent the country and not because I was involved or whatsoever,” he added.

Palmer, who is pursuing  a legal tussle at CAS, is still harbouring high hopes to become Ghana FA president despite being disqualified to participate in last year’s elections.
