Head coach of Techiman Eleven Wonders, Ignatius Osei Fosu has questioned the competence of FIFA referee Charles Bulu after his team’s 2-1 loss to Elmina Sharks.
Sharks restored some confidence in their Premier League Status when they held onto an early lead to beat Wonders their Ghana Premier League early kick-off in Elmina on Friday.
Striker Benjamin Boateng took only 4 minutes to get a brace in a game that later saw the away team dominating play. Abass Ganiu got the consolation for the visitors.
The game saw the visitors having two clear goals disallowed. With few minutes to end the first half, Alex Asamoah got a goal disallowed by Referee Charles Bulu for offside, a decision that did not go down well with the veteran striker.
Then in the second half, Ganiu Abass nearly netted a brace too after his shot outside the box went off the crossbar with the whole circumference of the ball crossing the goal line but again wasn’t given.
However, Television replays show the ball crossed the line.
And those decisions by the referee have elicited a bitter reaction from coach Ignatius Osei-Fosu.
“I don’t think we lost. Everybody that watched the game knows our first goal was a clear one and should have stood, again we scored another clear goal in the second half but was not given.”
“We didn’t lose because we weren’t good but we lost due to incompetence, for me, we have beaten them 2-3. The centre-man is a FIFA referee and wasn’t at the right place on most occasions in a tough game like this. He should be ashamed of himself.”
Eleven Wonders will have to honour their second consecutive away game as they play as guest to Dreams FC in match-week 30 of the Ghana Premier League.
