George Owu attacks Yakubu Limann after Hasaacas, Edubiase match

George Owu has alleged that referee Yakubu Limann, who was in the middle of New Edubiase United’s 2-1 win over Sekondi Hasaacas on Sunday at the Obuasi Len Clay Sports Stadium told the strikers of the home to enter the 18-yard box for him to award a penalty in their favour.

The First Capital Plus is getting hotter and hotter as the season reaches a climax and match day 28 wasn’t exception when New Edubiase United hosted Sekondi Hasaacas.

Hasaacas shot into the lead in the 34 minute through Frederick, before New Edubiase snatched the equalizer, but the Adansi based side were awarded a penalty, which Nuhu Fuseini’s missed from the spot kick, before they earned a late winner to boost their relegation chances.

George Owu, former Black Stars goalkeeper, who kept the post for Hasmal has accused referee Limann of aiding New Edubiase to get the victory.

“I don’t have any problem with the goals scored by New Edubiase, but I overheard the referee tell their players to enter the 18-yard box, which is not fair,” he told Metro fm.

Hasaacas will host Asante Kotoko on match day 29 in the penultimate match of the .ongoing league on 6 September, after a 3-week break for other the GFA organized competitions to complete.
