Hearts of Oak head coach Martin Koopman refrained from commenting on the penalty incident involving his team and Karela United on Saturday.
There was a late appeal for a Hearts of Oak penalty at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium, but the referee did not respond to those calls.
Following the 1-1 draw, Koopman chose not to discuss the penalty incident.
“It was a challenging match for both sides. We didn’t start well, falling behind 1-0, but I think in the second half, we improved and showed more fighting spirit,” he stated in a post-game interview with StarTimes.
“You can play attractive football, but you also need to have fighting spirit. The second half was decent, and we ended up with a 1-1 draw.
“There may have been a penalty, but I won’t comment on the referees. We ended with a 1-1 draw, which is better than a loss. We must aim to win the next game.”
Karela United was also awarded a penalty, which Richmond Ayi saved from Solomon Adomako.
