Asante Kotoko assistant coach Orlando Wellington has spoken out about his side's defeat to Hearts of Oak on Sunday, claiming that his team were denied a clear penalty during the match.
The game, which is the biggest fixture in the Ghana Premier League, saw the Phobians come out on top with a 1-0 win over the Porcupine Warriors, giving them the President Cup title for the second consecutive year.
During the post-match conference, Wellington expressed his frustration with the officiating and cited the missed penalty as a key factor in his team's loss. He stated, "Hearts of Oak scored an offside goal and the referee denied us a clear penalty."
Hearts of Oak have overtaken Kotoko in the Ghana Premier League table following the win.
