The head coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko Mariano Barreto after their emphatic 2-0 win over Berekum Chelsea has admonished the referees to protect the skillful players in our league.
This comes after left-back Imoro Ibrahim was injured by a Berekum Chelsea player in yesterday match.
In a post-match conference, the Portuguese trainer said.
“I have two players injured. The work of the referee is not only to whistle, he also has to protect the players. Now I have a National player injured, I don’t know how long he’ll be out”.
“Ghana have skillful players and the referee has to protect these players. I like warriors, my team are full of warriors but we don’t kick our opponents. You didn’t see any of the opponent’s player come off injured today”.
“Now I have to replace Imoro. The tackle on Imoro is a clear red card, clear red card”.
“We made two big mistakes and they almost scored. It’s not that they created these chances, we have them the ball. But after that, we started playing our way; not shooting long balls. I know people like long balls but it isn’t Kotoko way”.
“Berekum Chelsea were aggressive and created a lot of problems; we were not able to play as we planned in the first half”.
“We had more chances to make it 3-0 or 4-0 but because of the hard work of the opponents, I’ll have to accept the result. They were brave and did their best but the referee should be the judge and be fair and respect the rule of the game”.
” We need more time, maybe in six weeks we’ll start playing the way I want my team to play.[Daily Porcupine]
