Mr Evans Adotey, acting Head Coach of Medeama SC has said that his side played a very good match against Ashanti Gold and so he will not blame his players for losing by a goal at the end of the day.
Speaking to the media after the match on Friday, Mr Adotey said the two teams came in very strong and locked horns fiercely especially in the second half until the penalty awarded Ashgold three minutes to the end of the game changed the very nearly draw game to a defeat to his side.
“Ashanti Gold took the lead in the first half but I think my players did their best fighting for a win in the second half but it proved futile and I can’t blame them for the loss.
“It is definitely not a technical issue that made us lose this game, to get a last minute penalty is just a luck. My ‘boys’ did well.
“The Referee has the right on the spot as a professional and the one closer to the scene so he saw best and I can’t rebut his decision for awarding penalty to Ash gold”, he added.
The coach also noted that he has so far recommend some names to the management to look through and select a head coach for the team.
“I’ve recommended three coaches so far to management, it is now left to them to call them to the table and discuss. I know I am the technical director for Medeama who is acting as the head coach but I am doing my best till the team gets a head coach”.
Meanwhile, Benard Ofori, Captain for Medeama SC has urged supporters not to give up on them saying, “Last week we lost to Elmina sharks and we came back to correct our flaws but we have still lost this game against Ash gold and I understand that supporters are not happy but I am pleading with them to take it easy with us. We will do our best since we have more matches ahead to play”, he said.
