Affum gutted over disallowed debut goal for Young Boys

Published on: 19 February 2013

Ghanaian striker Samuel Affum is downed by the his disallowed debut goal for Young Boys over the weekend.

The 22-year-old thought he had scored his first goal for the Swiss club only to be ruled out for offside.

Replays however showed the referee made a mistake in disallowing the goal which should have stood.

Affum now feels hard done by the decision especially after seeing his side slump to a 2-0 defeat to Grasshopper in that game.

“I felt disappointed when the referee said I was found in the offside position because everybody who saw the replay said it was a good goal," Affum told Ghana.

“It was a little difficult because I haven’t played competitively for a while now.

“We lost against the league leaders and I think we have to look forward to the next games and see how it will go.”

Affum emerged the top scorer in the Ghanaian top flight in the 2009/10 season before leaving abroad.

He only joined Young Boys in January in a contested move from Egyptian club Smouha SC.

    Why are we not giving people like Affum a chance to play in the Black Stars.Gyan is a dead horse and we have to get rid of him if we want to improve Ghana soccer.
