Ghanaian referee Biney blasts 'uncivilized' Kotoko fans after latest attack

Ghanaian referee E.R Biney has launched a stinging pot shot at Kotoko fans labeling them as ‘uncivilized’ following a horrific attack on him during a Premier League game.

The centre referee claims he was subjected to physical attack by some irate Kotoko fans following their 1-0 home defeat to Heart of Lions on Wednesday.

He cited team manager Godwin Ablordey and chief supporter Ali Maradona as the primary instigators of the assault on him.

Biney has vowed never to officiate in any Kotoko matches, labeling the supporters as ‘uncivilized.

“It’s unfortunate but we’re in the 21st century. You don’t treat your fellow human being like that,” he fumed

“Even if you think I did something wrong, there are channels that you can follow to address yur grievances.”

“This level of incivility must stop because to the honest with you what they (fans) did was really uncivilized.

“I have said I will never officiate any match involving Kotoko and I stand by that.

“They said Lions cheated them in Kpando and so they must win at all cost in Kumasi.

“But football does not work that way. You have to work hard to earn the points. I awarded what I think was a perfect penalty and so that is enough grounds to attempt to kill me?

“I don’t think is fair and I won’t buy that.”

The Ghana FA is expected to come down heavy on the Porcupine Warriors who have already served home ban after a similar incident.

    Go to hell my friend. You are the most stupid referee I have ever seen. Doesnt your conscience prove you guilty?. You deserved to be killed on that very day. Thank God you are still alive. Next you must be prudent and God fearing. Do you think its easy to run a football club inGh. Do you know the cost of one fine player in the Kotoko set up. Go to church and give a thanksgiving offering bcos you should have been lynched. Shaaaame

    At least our coach has never attacked a referee as Polo did at Tarkwa.

  7. Thegreates says:

    Initially, I sympathized with the referee but his recent utterances have shown how stupid he is. How can he insult all Kotoko Fans. This guy should have been sent to KATH instead of allowing him to go home to insult entire fans. How many of Kotoko fans allegedly assaulted him. Who are his witnesses? He is even lying on Kotoko to help Hearts who cannot win matches on the field. This stupid referee is making up the story. The tunnel is always filled with security men to protect referees and players. How can a referee be beaten before the eyes of the security. He was not beaten on the field but in the tunnel, this is Fante lie.

  8. Thegreates says:

    Referees are getting away with bribery all the time. How many players have been suspended because of the actions of referees like Biney and how many referees have been suspended for their bribery decisions? Ghana football is not competitive because of referees like Biney who goes on the field to do the bid of Hearts of Oak with no consequences. You cannot run away from Kotoko fans in Ghana. We are everywhere and will be watching you. You do not deserve to be a referee. You talk about a process of resolving disputes, Mr. Biney, how many referees have been disciplined or punished for behaviors like yours. The entire referee fraternity is corrupt like you. Referees have caused players to lose their careers by stupid decisions and now sit up or quit.

    THIS REFFEEHAS CHEWED MORE THAN HE CAN BITE. DID HE ASK HIMSELF WHAT DID HE DO TO DESERVE AN ATTACK IF REALY THERE WAS ONE.
    U SEE WHEN PEOPLE WANT TO FIND WAYS AND MEANS TO WIN MATCHES IN THE BOARDROOM THIS IS THE WAY FORWARD. THEY DID NOT BEAT HIM ON THE FIELD OR OUTSIDE BUT RATHER IN THE TUNNEL??????? HE IS A CRAZY FU…..LYING REFREE WHO SHOULD BE SANCTIONED RATHER THAN THROWING THE BLAME ON TO SUPPORTERS.
