Liberian
side Barrack Young Controllers are blaming the centre referee Ouadragou Boukari
for aiding their 2-1 defeat to Asante Kotoko in Kumasi on Sunday in their CAF
Champions League qualifier.



President
of the club Prof Sekou Konneh believes the Burkinabe official handed his side a
raw deal.



He is
contesting Kotoko’s opener which was a 22nd minute penalty converted
by Kwabena Adusei.



“The game
was a very tight one, but officiating was terrible. The first penalty awarded
to Kotoko wasn’t a penalty,” Konneh said.



“Because of
this the referee failed to give the home side a clear penalty that came their
way, after we had equalized.



“In fact
the second penalty awarded was a clear one and Kotoko again had a third penalty
but he failed to take a bold decision because the fake penalty he gave them was
still haunting him.”



Barrack
Young Controllers will be counting on their away goal to see if they can
eliminate the two-time African champions next Sunday in Monrovia for the return
leg.
