The Referees Are Destroying Our Game - Olympics Captain Gladson Awako Laments

Great Olympics captain Gladson Awako says poor officiating in the ongoing Ghana Premier League is destroying the beauty of the game.

Olympics have complained about poor officating especially in their away games in the league.

The team complained bitterly about their defeat to AshantiGold SC on Sunday on matchday 25 at the Len Clay Sports Stadium.

The referee awarded a last-minute penalty to AshantiGold which saw them lose the game by a lone goal.

“It is not like all the time we are talking bad about referees. But we need the officials to sit up because the referees are destroying the game”, Gladson Awako lamented after the team lost against AshGold on Sunday.

“If the game was live on TV everybody will see that the penalty decision against Olympics was bad. Is it fair for a referee to award a penalty when the player had been fouled outside the box”.

Great Olympics suffered their second defeat in a row and have dropped to the fifth position on the league log.

The Black Stars midfielder has stated that the team can win the league if only they can be guaranteed fair officiating in their away games.

“There are still more games to be played because there are so many games to be played and the league is very competitive”

“Olympics have had unfair officiating this season and if things go on fairly we can win the title. Most of the games we have lost away was due to bad officiating”.

Gladson Awako stated the team is trying to meet its target by the end of the season.
