Mohammed could face FA rap

Hearts coach Mohammed Polo could be charged with an FA misconduct after he charged on referee John Atikese during their 2-1 defeat at Medeama.

Polo was incensed with the decision to allow Kabiru Moro’ winner to stand and rushed onto the pitch in protest.

He was followed by his backroom battalion including assistant coach Ben Adjei and other officials who were extremely angry with the match officials.

The FA will likely take a dim view of his actions at the Tarkwa and Aboso Park which could have incited the travelling fans.

Hearts were desperate to close the gap on arch-rivals and leaders Kotoko but have seen that ambition dashed.

They still trail the champions by 12 points with ten games to end the season.

    This is more reason why our teams doesn't do well in Africa. Believe me or not, Medeama will exit in their next game because they don't play any good football except patapaa football. How could you injure your fellow player and are happy with your team owner and coach for sake of winning at all cost. I'm not Hearts fan but believe me Medeama bought the referee to rub Hearts so what is this rubbish publication that Polo could be charged by the FA. Ghana football is sinking and will not grown with this attitude of robbing Kwame to pay Peter scheme. The young referee who died last week on similar issue should be a lesson for the rest. Thank you.
