Ghana's No. 1

VIDEO: Controversial handball incident denies Asante Kotoko win against Bibiani Gold Stars 

Published on: 17 January 2023

A controversial penalty awarded to Bibiani Gold Stars by referee Franklin Akumetey saw the Porcupine Warriors drop vital points at the Dun's Park on Monday.

Asante Kotoko are without a win in their last four games in the Ghana Premier League.

Uganda international Steven Mukwala had put Asante Kotoko in the lead with a cool and nice finish in the first half.

Referee Franklin Akumetey awarded Gold Stars a non-existent penalty some few minutes later.

Yahaya Dramani scored from the spot kick to give Bibiani Gold Stars the equalizer.

Replays after the game showed the ball should have gone for a foul against Bibiani Gold Stars instead of a penalty.

The referee after consultations with his assistant line II stuck to his call for the penalty against Asante Kotoko.
