Ghana's No. 1

Hearts fans feel vindicated after referees chief's sacking

Published on: 21 March 2012

Hearts of Oak fans feel vindicated after the ethics committee recommended the removal of the Referees Appointment Committee chairman Osei Tutu Agyemang.

Agyemang, an Ashanti Regional FA chairman, was accused of abuse of power after his comments on a Kumasi-based radio station suggested he would use his position to help Asante Kotoko win this season's league.

The supporters body of Hearts (National Chapters Committee) protested vehemently and began a campaign for his removal.

The voice recording was played back when he met the ethic committee on Tuesday and was charged with misconduct.

Agyemang has since been removed as chairman of the referees appointment committee.

''We stand for justice and we have received justice,'' Alhaji Akanbi, NCC chairman, told Kumasi-based FOX FM.

"This is a word of caution for anyone who will come to succeed him because it is worrying to be cheated by referees.

"It tells the whole world what we are made of and that we understand football, we are on course.''
