Accra Hearts of Oak board member, Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe has slammed referee Kennedy Padi who officiated Sunday’s Super Clash between Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak.
The former Ghana Football Association (GFA) president described referee Kennedy Pady as “very useless.”
Hearts suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to bitter rivals Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium, thanks to a converted penalty from Franck Etouga Mbella.
Reacting in the aftermath of the game, Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe said the level of officiating was not the best.
In his view, no penalty should’ve been awarded, while suggesting that a time will come where foreign referees will be invited to officiate big matches in Ghana.
“The referee today was very useless. If this is the level of officiating we are going to witness from our referees, we will call for foreign referees to games like this. There was no penalty there to take,” he told Angel FM.
Kotoko maintain their 9-point gap at the summit of the Ghana Premier League table on 52 points after 24 matches.
