Veteran Medeama SC forward, Ahmed Simba Toure says the penalty he won, which eventually gave his side a 1-0 victory over Hearts of Oak on Wednesday, was as a result of his “experience”.

The Burkinabe striker won his side a penalty in the 80th minute of game when Hearts of Oal defender Robert Addo Sowah impeded him from as he was through on goal.

The resulting penalty was expertly dispatched by former Phobian defender Vincent Atinga to hand the Mauves and Yellows an important victory at the Akoon Park in Tarkwa.

Speaking about the penalty incidence, Toure recounted that he played a smart one on the defender after realising it will be difficult for him to score.

“You cannot create that penalty if you don’t have experience because I lost my first control but I realized I was in the 18-yard box and the defender was running towards me with speed so I had to quickly shift in front of him, he had no option than to push me,” the former Kotoko striker told Foxx FM in Kumasi.

“It would have been difficult for me to score if he had not fouled me. An inexperienced player wouldn’t have fell but decide to score,” Toure added.

The experienced attacker also reacted to Samuel Boadu’s post match assertions that the referee had his call wrong before explaining why he didn’t elect himself to take the penalty awarded.

“With much respect to coach Samuel Boadu, that incident was a clear penalty but I understand his point because he is a coach who’s lost a crucial game,” Toure continued.

“Since the days of Kotoko, I do not take penalty kicks. Even when I was vying for the goal king, Akuffo was taking penalties. I prefer scoring normal goals,as a striker you have to work for the goals,” he concluded
