Mintah wants ref stripped of badge



Dwarfs were on a good run and wanted to end the year in the top two, until outstanding Amidaus cut them to size in Cape Coast. But Professor Mintah, the team's coach, took exception to the referees' showing.

Seidu Bomison, who has a long history of controversial games, was in charge of this game which Dwarfs lost 2-0.

"I don’t complain about referees but this particular referee was the cause of our defeat," the Professor said after the game.

Yahaya Mohammed , recently called into the Black Stars, as well as Roger Adongo got the goals for the Tema-based side.

"We lost to Liberty 3-0 at this same venue and I never complained. So it’s not about losing. But the referee must come into the game with an open mind. Clearly he came here with the points in his pocket," unhappy Dwarfs gaffer said.

"I'm not saying he should be banned or something but I want the GFA to strip him off the badge. He doesn’t deserve to wear it. He is an apology of referees in Ghana."

The Cape Coast side are now fourth on the table.
