Ashanti Gold centre-back Abeiku Ainooson has refused to blame referee Prosper Adii after he awarded Kotoko a late penalty in their 1-1 drawn game at the Baba Yara Stadium on Thursday.
The Obuasi-based club netted first through Hans Kwoffie before the referee gave Kotoko a late penalty which was slotted home by Sadick Adams.
Many people have complained about the penalty but Ainooson believes the referee is the man with the knowledge and he only knows and can determine if it was a penalty or not.
“I don’t want to blame the referee, he is the one who went and learnt his course , so he knows what he is doing, I will not blame him.” Ainooson told footballmadeinghana.com
“The referee can be right or wrong, they are also human beings. I prefer not to blame him because is part of football,”
Ashanti Gold are tenth on the league log with 35 points.
