Assistant coach of Medeama Sporting Club – Yaw Acheampong has criticized the performance of referee Ali Musah who handled their matchday 29 fixture against Hearts of Oak on Sunday.

According to the former Black Stars midfielder [Yaw Acheampong], the referee could not stamp his authority in the game.

“I think the match was bigger than the referee. He has to take full control of the game but he couldn’t do that,” the coach said.

His stance was amplified by Eric Kwakwa who claimed that the referee denied Medeama a clear penalty in the first stanza.

“We had a clear penalty in the first half, because tackle from behind is an offense, but we can’t do anything about that because he [referee Ali Musah] is the man in the middle.”

Hearts of Oak won the match 2-0 but, coach Acheampong believe Medeama were just unlucky to have lost the game:

“We played very very well today, but we were unlucky.

“We were controlling the game in the first half until we made that mistake which resulted in their goal and then we came in again strongly in the second half and then we gave away another goal,” he noted.
