Aduana coach Tandoh fumes at poor officiating, warns next incident will be suicidal

Aduana Stars head coach Paul Tandoh is not happy with officiating which saw his team lose 1-0 in their opening day encounter with Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium in the NC’s Special Competition Cup.

Former Kotoko striker Yahaya Mohammed equalised mid-way through the first half after conceding an early goal, but his effort was adjudged as offside.

However, repeated replays showed Yahaya’s goal was legitimate and should have stood but was controversially disallowed by centre referee Daniel Laryea.

Tandoh, who made his frustration known to the media on how disappointed he was pleaded with the Referees Appointment Committee to work on the referees if they are to enjoy a good tournament.

“Our officials must normalise themselves too, because, it will be suicidal next time when anybody takes the route to defend somebody who is weak,” Coach Tandoh told GTV after the game.
“I want to tell the NC Chairman and the Appointment Committee of the Referees that, they should look sharp because it was a bad thing.
“Laryea [Referee Daniel Laryea] has disgraced himself very well. The goal he disallowed, the player was in the pole so how do you disallow it.
“That’s a very bad thing. So, I beg the officials that, if they want us to have a good tournament, then they should work on the referees because they are still not normalised.”
