Kotoko players nonetheless thanked their fans.
Referee Sukah marred beautiful Super Clash
Posted on: Mon Mar 20, 2017 - Report by Bernard Nyankomago Yeboah
Referee Samuel Suker on Sunday didn’t only disgrace himself and Ghanaian referees with his 84th minute decision, which gave Hearts an underserved win over Kotoko on match day eight of the 2016/17 Premier League, he also marred what could have passed as an excellent Super Clash in Accra.
He spoilt the beauty of the big game, which was clearly heading to a perfect end. After his good show in the first half, Samuel Sukah returned to the second half to cheat Kotoko in the most appalling fashion in front of television cameras. Hearts launched an attack on Kotoko in their desperate attempt for a goal in the closing stages.
Ahmed Adams dived to stop the shot with his back inside the box. Very close to the spot, the stupefied Samuel Sukah hesitated a bit before whistling for a penalty which was converted by Vincent Atinga to give Hearts the soiled victory while ending Kotoko’s unbeaten run in the league.
Kotoko are however keep the second place on the table with 17 points. Referee Sukah was booed by the fans as he was escorted out of the pitch by police personnel in a style, akin to how notorious warlords are guarded to security vehicles when caught at battle fronts. In the end, it was typical daylight robbery against Kotoko by an ignoble, incompetent Samuel Sukah.
