Head coach of Ashantigold, Svetislav Tanasijevic has questioned why rivals Kumasi Asante Kotoko have continually benefited from refereeing decisions, after his side lost 2-0 to their regional rivals in the ongoing NC Special Competition.
Two goals from Abdul Fatawu Safiu settled a nervy tie in Kumasi in a game the Obuasi side dominated and forced Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan into a man of the match performance.
But the game could have easily swung in favor of the miners in the first half; after Ashgold’s Outtarra Salia was hurled down in the box by Annan, referee Charles Bulu declined to give a penalty, instead waving play on.
Tanasijevic was left fuming at that decision and questioned the performance of the referee in the game.
“If Asante Kotoko is a big club why are referees always helping them? We had a clear penalty he ignored.
“ I’m extending an invitation to the referee into our dressing room just to observe how my boys are shedding tears, knowing he caused our loss,” Tanasijevic said in his post-match
