Hearts of Oak coach Samuel Boadu has called for good officiating in the second leg of the CAF Champions League meeting with Wydad Casablanca in Morocco.
Boadu's side won the first leg 1-0 in Accra, but wasn't happy with the officiating by Angolan referee Helder Martins Rodrigues De Carvalho at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Boadu was booked for confronting the referee during the game, and Hearts of Oak fans expressed their disappointment by hooting at the official after the final whistle.
“It is going to be game management when we go to Morocco. If we get good officiating Hearts of Oak can score over there,” he said at the post-match conference.
“Everybody saw the performance of the referee and if we get good officiating in Morocco, Hearts of Oak will win,”
“Hearts of Oak has good players to compete with WAC of Morocco. We are ok with the one goal we scored. We shouldn’t give up and we are going to qualify over there”, he ended.
The second leg will be played on Sunday in Casablanca with the winner of the tie progressing to the group stage.
