Asante Kotoko centre-back, Ahmed Adams has expressed his disappointment at the decision by Referee Samuel Suka to award Hearts of Oak a controversial penalty that led to Kotoko’s loss to Accra Hearts Of Oak in the Super Clash on Sunday evening.
Kotoko suffered their first defeat in the ongoing Ghana Premier League 2017 via a spot kick to their arch rival after referee Samuel Suker awarded a “dubious” penalty in the 83rd minute which was nicely converted by Vincent Atinga.
Adams who allegedly committed the said penalty, was shown the yellow card after protesting bitterly to the referee but he feels the decision is the most disappointing ever in his football career.
“I was very disappointed in the decision of the referee to award Hearts a penalty”.
“I blocked the ball with my back not my hand, so I was amazed when he (Samuel Suker) awarded that penalty,” Ahmed said.
“I personally told the referee he had handled the game very well until his dubious penalty decision killed the good moments he had in the game.
“It is a decision that hurts me so much and can never be forgotten because it cost us three points to our bitterest rivals and that is really painful.
“We deserved to win the game and everybody saw we played better than Hearts of Oak if not for that penalty awarded to them.”
Adams spoke on Boss FM today during their Boss Sports 2 show.
