Bechem United head coach, Kassim Ocansey Mingle has been fined GHS1,000 for alleging that his side was robbed by the match officials in their match against Accra Great Olympics.
The charge sheet stated that Mingle stated that the officials rob his club anytime they play away from home and described the referee’s performance in the Olympics game as a “complete robbery.”
“The referee robbed us of victory today. We scored a perfect goal which he disallowed. We had a clear penalty but he ignored it,” he was quoted as having said after the game.
In his defence statement, Kassim Mingle apologised for his choice of words during the post-match interview but presented footage apparently backing his claims.
He was also fined GHS1,000 cedis and warned that any future misconduct would attract a more severe punishment.
