Amidaus Professionals chief Ghado attacks referee Samuel Lee over Hearts blunders

Hearts of Oak beat Amidaus Professionals 3-0 on Sunday

Amidaus Professionals President Baba Ghado has slammed referee Samuel Lee Lee for overlooking a ‘clear’ penalty during their 3-0 humiliation against Hearts of Oak but says he won’t report the whistleman to the Ghana Football Association.

The President is mad at the referee for not awarding a contentious first-half penalty to striker Nana Poku after being fouled by Rubin Gnagne in the Hearts area.

“This referee must be banned with immediate effect. He should not be allowed to officiate in any game in Ghana because he performed abysmally and that helped Hearts to their victory,” he told Accra-based Happy FM.

The Tema-based side managed to hold the Phobians to a goalless stalemate before surrendering to a 3-0 loss in the second departmet with Eric Kumi, Selasi Adjei and Rubin Gnagne scoring for Hearts.

An angry Ghado claims he told his players during recess they will lose the game in the last 45 minutes.

“You know when we went into the dressing room for the second half, I told my boys we have already lost the game due to the referee’s bad officiating.”

Normally, a team which is unhappy with the performance of a match official is expected to petition the Ghana Football Association’s disciplinary wing but Ghado says he will not write to the GFA.

“Match assessors from the GFA were around and saw that penalty and if they won’t take any decision against the referee, we won’t write to them.”

Amidaus have dropped to 11th on the league table and are inching closer to the drop-zone.

    These are personalities destroying our football. What is Mr Baba Ghado saying, is he saying the referee assisted Hearts to score all the goals? No wonder it was Happy FM Odiasempa and his panelits that organized this. We were at the Stadium and saw total dominance by Hearts over the your team so what are you talking about. Stop the talks and work on your team. Shame.
