Affum gutted over disallowed debut goal for Young Boys

Samuel Affum in action for Young Boys

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.
