I prefer not to speak about officiating – Elmina Sharks coach Mallam Yahaya

Head coach of Elmina Sharks, Mallam Yahaya has refused to comment on the performance of referee, Richmond Antwi following his side’s defeat to Hearts of Oak.

The Fearsome side hosted the Phobians at the Ndoum Sports Complex in the matchday 8 games on Wednesday.

However, Sharks were stunned by a lone goal with Gladson Awako scoring the only goal of the game in the second half of the game.

The game saw both teams shown a red card late in the game but Sharks feel they were unfairly treated with regards to officiating.

However, Yahaya has refused to speak about the officiating adding that his side could have done better against the Rainbow club.

“I think it was not a bad game as both teams played very well. Tactically we played very well. We got our chances but we couldn’t make it,” he said during his post-match interview.

“I don’t want to talk about officiating, that one I will be very quiet. Everybody saw what the referee did but it’s normal.

“We accept the loss. We are going to correct our mistakes for the next match so that we can back up and also win the match,” he added.

Yahaya, who was once the coach of Wassaman, has a history of fiercer disagreements with referees.

Earlier this year, the former Ghana international was fined an amount of GHC2000 and handed an 8 match ban for intimidating a referee during a Division One League fixture with Star Madrid.

Elmina Sharks currently sit in 15th on the league standings having taken just seven points from their opening eight games.
