"He's a cheat" - Winful Cobinnah slams referee Gagba

"It's bad for Ghana football if we want our game to reach a higher level..."


Hearts of Oak midfielder Winful Cobbinah has blasted referee Dally Gagba of not being good enough after their 1-1 stalemate against Asante Kotoko, saying the off at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Phobians opened the scoring courtesy Kwame Kizito on the 60th minute mark but Adams ensured both sides shared the spoils when he converted from the penalty spot in the 78th minute.

Kotoko's Amos Frimpong’s strike on target was adjudged to have hit the hand of Hearts of Oak's Leonard Tawiah.

The referee pointed to the spot for Adams to convert, a decision that did not go down well with the Phobians.

"We didnt lose concentration and stamina at any point in the game, only that they came up tops after getting the equalizer, and I think the referee was also with them. I can say this without blinking because you could see the penalty he awarded them, a very poor call from him," Cobbinah said in a post match interview.

"He intentionally decided to let Kotoko back in the game. It's bad for Ghana football if we want our game to reach the level we crave for. A game of this magnitude needs a fair officiating but today we didn't get one."
