The All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) President Ganesh Thapa defended that the accusations raised against him regarding corruption is untrue.

Speaking at a press meet at ANFA complex at Satdobato, Lalitpur on Monday, Thapa said he is ready to leave the post if the accusation to him regarding corruption is proved.

“I am not involved in any embezzlement,” he said.

As the FIFA is investigating the issue, Thapa said it is not favourable situation to comment on FIFA vote buying issue.

However, Thapa agreed that the money he had taken from Mohammed Bin Hammam’s company was for his personal business purpose.

Thapa said he has a business deal with Hammam’s company since 2008 and it’s personal. However, he did not reveal the type of business.

A British newspaper “The Sunday Times” had reported that Thapa has received £115,000 from the banned president of Asian Football Confederation and FIFA’s executive committee, Bin Hammam.

Meanwhile, some ANFA officials including VP Karma Tsering Sherpa have also demanded an investigation into the corruption charges against Thapa.
