Dreams FC coach Abdul Karim Zito insists he spoke the truth in his post-match speech on officiating after side's 1-0 defeat to Hearts of Oak which has earned him a Ghana FA charge.
The ex-international was furious referee Morrison Esso denied them a last-minute penalty after veteran Eric Gawu had been pushed down inside the Hearts box.
After the match, Zito said : ''Because the FA President (Kurt) was a director of the club, the referees fear they will be accused if they give us the right decisions.''
He has also been charged for using abusive language and facing a one-match ban and a fine of GH₵5, 000.
Zito believes he spoke the truth and is showing no remorse for his outburst.
''I said it, if they take me anywhere I will tell them I said it because when you look at my record I’ve never fought with a referee before but something has been happening to us that is why I said that,'' Zito is reported to have told Kumasi based OTEC FM.
''Coaches, we do talk about what worries us so if what I said at the post-match is what they’ve used to charge me then I don’t think they are fair because I don’t see any abusive language in my words.
''I won’t change what I said even if they FA takes me to Tribunal, even if it will cause my coaching career because I don’t see anything wrong with defending my team. ''
