Chief Executive Officer of Berekum Chelsea Nana Kwame Nketia says they will appeal the three-match decision by the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association.
The Blues have been slapped with a three-match home ban after assaulting referee Yakubu Liman Nuhu in their 1-1 stalemate game against Dreams FC on Match Day 2 of the Ghana Premier at the Golden City Park.
According to reports in the aftermath of the match, referee Nuhu Liman was severely manhandled by the supporters of Berekum Chelsea before being rushed to the hospital after falling unconscious in the process of the attack.
This incident has warranted the attention of the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association, thus handing the Berekum based team three matches ban from their home grounds [Golden City Park], which indicates that, Chelsea will play home away from home against Bechem United in the week 7 of the Ghana Premier League.
However, speaking to Happy FM‘s Wamputu Sports, Kwame Nketia profusely protested the ban and says they will file for an appeal.
“We will go for Appeal regarding the banned on three of our home matches,” Nketia stated.
“If Nuhu Liman claimed he was beaten up by Berekum Chelsea fans to a point where he fainted and got hospitalized, where did he get the strength to officiate in today’s match?”
“The stuffs he claimed was missing due to the beating are the same stuffs he is wearing, I’m talking about the slippers and wrist watch.”
