Kotoko's deputy coach Godwin Ablordey was not happy with Samuel Sukah, centre referee for the Super Clash on Sunday.
Kotoko deputy coach Godwin Ablordey has taken a strong swipe at referee Samuel Sukah following his side’s 0-1 loss to their fiercest rivals Hearts of Oak.
With seven minutes left on the clock, the Phobians broke the deadlock through Vincent Atingah’s spot kick after the referee believed Ahmed Adams handled Samuel Yeboah’s shot in the box.
Ablordey is not confused with respect to Sukah’s call in awarding a penalty against his side.
“I have just watched the replay. It wasn’t a penalty. The way referees are officiating in Ghana, they will always take our game back,” Ablordey blasted.
“Am even surprised Joseph Lamptey was the fourth referee. This is a man who went to South Africa, a ball hits a player in the thigh and he awards a penalty. He was handed a three months ban and here he is on the touchline in such a big game.
“I want everyone to go and watch the ball again. If it is a penalty, fair enough but if it is not, we all know the kind of referees we have,” he added.
He added that his side played better than their rivals.
“We dominated Hearts and were fighting for the winner when that happened. He was not fair to us at all either than that anyone who watched the game will agree with me that we played better than Hearts,” he noted.
