Chelsea fans intimidated the referee to rob us – Bashir Hayford


Head coach of Legon Cities, Bashir Hayford has bemoaned the attitude of supporters who threatened to beat the referees when they went to the Golden City Park to play their week 18 fixture against Berekum Chelsea.

Reacting at post-match interview, the former Black Queens coach implied that most Ghanaian clubs fail to excel in African competitions because they win the league with intimidation from supporters.

“The referees were intimidated by the supporters in the tunnel. They told him that if they lose the game, they will beat them like what happened at Wamanafo so the referee didn’t want to be beaten and was scared.

“These are some of the things that happen in Ghana football if you are a coach you don’t even know if you are moving forward or moving back you prepare your team and then the referee robs you,” he intimated

The ex Ashgold trainer maintained that his team were on top of the game but lost to Berekum Chelsea by 2-1 because of the intimidation which dampened the spirit of the oil-rich club.
