Asante Kotoko coach, Maxwell Konadu has blamed referee Daniel Laryea for their 1-1 drawn game against Berekum Chelsea at the Berekum Golden City Park on matchday two of the 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League.

Asante Kotoko’s quest to record their first away win against Berekum Chelsea in over a decade was crushed by a last-minute strike from their former player, Emmanuel Clottey.

Striker Emmanuel Clottey unleashed a thunderbolt to snatch the equalizer in the final minutes as the match finished 1-1 at the Golden City Park.

However, it seems Maxwell Konadu had a problem with the decision of the referee to award Berekum Chelsea with a freekick in the final minutes of the game.

“It's was a very good and tough match. I said we came to win and that is what we wanted to do exactly. And had it not been the referee, it could have ended differently."

"He is a referee I respect so much but then in the last minute, I don’t know what came over him. But that is football, you accept it in football and move on," Maxwell Konadu said at the post-match press conference.
