Referee Who Officiated Hearts vs Elmina Sharks Game Suspended For The Rest Of The Season

Published

on

Maxwell Kofi Owusu, who officiated the match between Hearts of Oak and Elmina Sharks on Matchday 25, has been suspended by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) for the remainder of the season.

The GFA’s match review panel made the decision after receiving official complaints from Elmina Sharks.

Owusu admitted on social media after the game that he made some poor decisions.

Sharks complained that Assistant Referee 1 (Tijani Mohammed) disallowed a good goal scored by Elmina Sharks and flagged for an offside in the 31st minute of the first half.

The club also stated that in the 20th minute of the first half, Referee Maxwell Kofi Owusu ignored a foul for Elmina Sharks in the penalty area.

According to Elmina Sharks, assistant referee 1 (Tijani Mohammed) flagged for a goal kick for Hearts of Oak instead of corner for Elmina Sharks in the 35th minute of the 1st half.

The club further stated that referee (Maxwell Kofi Owusu) awarded a penalty kick to Hearts of Oak (handball) though the ball hit the shoulder of the player and not his hand. The player was subsequently shown with a red card for wrong decision in the 41st minute.

The Referee and his assistant referee 2 were also accused of overlooking a serious foul play on an Elmina Sharks player in the 60th minute of the 2nd half as well as refusing to rule a goal that was scored in the 78th minute as offside.

After video review, here’s the verdict by the Match Review Panel:

  1. In the case of corner kick incident, the match officials had it wrong awarding a goal kick instead of a corner kick.
  2. The 20th minute complaint, the referee was right by ignoring the foul which was a fair challenge. The attacker number 10 of Elmina Sharks exaggerated by a slight challenge.
  3. Per the video watched, the penalty awarded against Elmina Sharks player number 25 was a wrong judgement from the referee because the ball hit the shoulder of the player and not the arm/hand. In converting the penalty kick the goalkeeper of Elmina Sharks was completely off his line before and during the kick.
  4. The red card was shown wrongly to Elmina Sharks number 20 instead of number 25 who committed the offence.
  5. The video also showed clearly that the serious foul play incident complained about by Elmina Shark did not exist, since there was no contact.
  6. the referee had his decision right when he disallowed a goal scored by number 28 of Elmina Sharks because the player was in an offside position at the time of the kick and he received the ball from a deliberate safe from the goalkeeper hence gaining advantage.
  7. On the complaint that the second goal scored by Hearts of Oak was offside, the video watched indicated that player number 34 of Elmina Sharks played the attacker on side, hence the goal scored was good.

DECISION
