The Ghana Fa Match review panel has vindicated Referee Wric Owusu Prempeh following complaints from eleven Wonders in the match week 11 of the Ghana Premier league.
Referee Prempeh survived an end of game ‘attack’ from coach Ignatius Osei Fosu after the game for poor officiating, but had his fate in the hands of the Review panel.
Below is the Ghana FA’s report
“The GFA Match Review Panel has announced three decisions on complaints received from some Clubs in the ongoing league competitions.
BECHEM UNITED VS. ELEVEN WONDERS (MATCH DAY 11)
Eleven Wonders complained that in the 2nd and 76th minute of the match, the referee ignored a ball that hit the hand of a Bechem United player and another foul committed by an Eleven Wonders player.
Also, they complained about decisions taken by Referee Eric Owusu Prempeh in the 82nd and 83rd minutes in favour of Bechem United.
After watching the video of the match, the Panel observed that there was no hand ball incident. The ball hit the hand when the hand was on the body of the player.
On other incidents, the Panel found that the referee did his best under those circumstances.
Consequently, the Match Review Panel decided to grant the Referee the benefit of the doubt under the circumstances and encouraged him to live above reproach”.
