Tema Youth coach blasts 'shameful' referees after AshGold defeat; wants to quit coaching


Tema Youth coach Edward Odoom says he will quit coaching after describing officiating in his side's 2-0 defeat AshantiGold as 'shameful'.

The defeat has seen the Harbour City Boys drop into the relegation zone with just two games to end the season.

"If officiating in Ghana does not change, some of us will stop coaching. It is a bad day for refereeing," Odoom said in a post-match conference

"Some of the referees have just made their mind to do whatever they want to do. It is bad and shameful for Ghana referees.

"I will stop coaching because I cannot waste my time to coach my boys, do whatever I want them to do on the pitch then a referee will take few minutes to allow my to lose. It is very painful.''

Odoom questioned the legitimacy of AshantiGold's opener when the ball had gone out of play.

"Look at the first goal. If the whole circumference of the ball crosses the line and you still allow our opponents to pass and put in the net, is it a good goal?," he asked.

"That brought this game to a shameful end. If that goal had not stand, I don't think Ashanti Gold SC would have beaten us.

"It is bad goal scored against us. I think it is bad and shameful."

Tema Youth will play Bechem United at home next weekend and travel to Berekum Chelsea on the final day.
