King Faisal Chief Executive Vincent Sowah-Odotei is unhappy with the appointment of referee Franklin Kobina for their decisive National Division One League play-offs against Hasaacas.
The Kumas-base club will battle the giants of the West in a crucial replay to determine who picks the final qualification slot to the Premier League at the Tema Sports Stadium.
Their last encounter ended goalless at the same stadium but a premiership candidates will surely be confirmed on Friday.
The fixture has been heightened by a perceived political equation and Faisal’s chief is raising the alarm bell against the controversial centre man.
“We will immediately send a petition to the GFA to have Franklin Kobina replaced because we believe he is a biased referee,” Odotei told Accra-based Peace FM
“I don’t’ even want to revisit our last encounter with him. It very bad to say the least. We had such a bad refereeing from him and for such a crucial match we don’t think he is the right man to handle it,”
“I believe our chemistry will not be good with him at all. He wil be a recipe for disaster if he is allowed to officiate this game.
Referee Kobina has previously served a one-year ban for poor officiating during a League between King Faisal and Berekum Arsenals in the past.
King Faisal meets Hasaacas in a neck-to-neck race to qualify to the Premier League with the winner picking the last available slot to the top flight.
