Aduana Stars Operations officer George Gyawu has kicked against the Ghana FA’s decision to beef up security at selected match venues deemed to be volatile.
The Ghana FA as part of its efforts to rid the local game off hooligans have employed the use of military personnel at grounds noted for their notoriety.
But the Aduana Stars chief who witnessed such unfortunate scenes in their last Premier League outing at Dwarfs says the decision to select only ‘troubled spots’ is not far reaching enough.
“I understand the Ghana FA is doing its best to solve the problem of hooliganism but this decision for me is not appropriate,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
“For instance we travelled to Cape Coast in what was to be a purely clean game but in the end turned out to be the most troubled venue that week.
“My point is, reserving special treatment for few venues will mean the others will run into unguarded chaos.
“I believe beefed up security at all venues with the military will better ensure there is no room for such violence to occur.”
An unfortunate trend of attacks on match officials is beginning to emerge in the Premier League.
There were several reports of violence in the last round of matches with the Robert Mensah Stadium in Cape Coast the most culpable.
