CK Akunnor facing Ghana FA wrath after attempted assault on referee

AshantiGold coach Charles Akunnor could face disciplinary action after he attempted a physical assault on referee Charles Bulu during his side’s 2-1 defeat at Medeama on Saturday.

The former Black Stars captain was left livid after the referee awarded an injury-time penalty to the Mauve and Yellows.

Akunnor removed his jacket and jumped onto the pitch after the final whistle and attempted to attack the match official in a sensational fashion at the Tarkwa and Aboso Park.

The shocking action of the Ashantigold gaffer exposed his lack of emotional stability - receiving a widespread condemnation from supporters.
Medeama could have buried the league leaders under an avalanche of goals but for the resolute defence of the Obuasi- based side.

Medeama were earlier denied a second goal after Justice Blay’s powerful header crossed the line but the referee waved on - bringing into the force need to perhaps look implementing the goal-line technology in the country.
The Yellow and Mauves opened the scoring with a powerful header from Justice Blay before Emmanuel Akuoku pulled parity to end the first half.

The total dominance of the home team continued as the visitors were made to chase shadows but occasionally threatened after the introduction of Daniel Gozar.

Veteran goalkeeper George Owu could be cursing his stars after his delayed antics came to hunt him on the stroke of full time.
He punched the ball straight into the hands of his defender with just a minute left- and the referee was left with no choice - which midfielder Kwasi Donsu expertly converted to hand Medeama the deserved three points.

Medeama maintain their 3rd position on the standings with 16 points with two games in hand.
