Ref Morrison banned for awarding wrong penalty in Hearts, Aduana game

November 25, 2021 By 0 Comments

The Ghana Football Association on Wednesday announced that referee Eso Doh Morrison has been suspended for eight games over a wrong penalty decision in a Premier League match.

According to Match Review Panel, Morrison erred in his decision to award Aduana Stars a penalty in the clash with Hearts of Oak on matchday 3.

Morrison sent off Mohammed Alhassan and gave Aduana a penalty in the 78th minute after adjudging the Hearts of Oak defender to have committed a foul on Bright Adjei.

Replays showed it was a soft call but Adjei wouldn’t mind as he scored to cancel out Kofi Kordzi’s early strike as the game ended in a stalemate.

The Phobians complained about the decision that cost them three points and the referee will not officiate for eight matchdays.

Referee Eso Doh Morrison, however, tried to defend every action and decision he took during the match even when all the actions were replayed to him in the video clips.
