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.

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.”

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
