Alhaji Karim Grunsah, Owner of Kumasi based King Faisal who plays in Ghana’s Division One has outlined his surprise at Kotoko’s claim of bias officiating by Referee Samuel Suka in the Week 8 match against Accra Hearts of Oak.
Kotoko lost to Hearts of Oak in the Super Clash by 1-0, after Vincent Atinga converted what was regarded by many-a-fan as a controversial penalty in favour of Hearts and class one referee Samuel Sukah has been at the centre of a social media backlash following his questionable penalty decision to gift Hearts the winner.
Speaking on Boss FM’s afternoon Sports show, Alhaji Grunsah said ““Is the penalty the reason why many people are complaining? Kotoko have also benefited from dubious penalty decisions to win their matches in the league, so we should all stop talking too much,”
“Referees are human so they can also make mistakes in a game.This penalty awarded is nothing new to the Ghanaian game.
His side, King Faisal played at the top level of Ghana League till they were relegated four seasons ago.
The controversy over the “said penalty” keeps increasing by the days as Kotoko officials and supporters keep firing at referee Suka with Hearts Of Oak on the other side defending vehemently that it was a clean and clear penalty.
