Olympics to file protest against ‘unfair’ officiating in Legon Cities game

Kwame Asuah Takyi, a Board Member for Accra Great Olympics has expressed disappointment with the refereeing decisions during the club’s 1-1 draw with Legon Cities at the Accra Sports Stadium over the weekend.

The referee, Eric Owusu Prempeh and his assistant, Patrick Papaala deliberated for some time before ruling that an offside decision was against Olympics rather than a foul in their favor, resulting in the cancellation of their penalty.

As a result, some Board Members and a portion of the fans were dissatisfied.

In an exclusive interview with Citi Sports, Takyi stated that the Board intends to protest against the referee’s actions in the coming days.

He believes that unfair officiating harms football and that it must be addressed to improve the sport.

“The officiating has not been fair. It’s not been fair. You were all there, you saw what happened, and this cannot improve our football,” he said.

“I think that we will have to file a protest against the conduct of the referee and his assistant. It’s not fair. Our game will not develop if our match officials [continue like this],” he added.

After 23 games, Great Olympics are 14th in the league table and will face Real Tamale United in their next betPawa Premier League game in Tamale.
