“Referee Kennedy Padi is a devil,” Hearts of Oak board member Akambi fires after defeat to Kotoko


The Phobians boss has slammed the referee after he awarded Kotoko what he claims to be a dubious penalty

Hearts of Oak board member Alhaji Akambi has aimed a dig at referee Kennedy Padi following their 1-0 defeat to Asante Kotoko in Ghana Premier League on Sunday.

Mbella Etouga scored the only goal after Fabio Gama was adjudged to have been brought down by Nurudeen Aziz.

“He is a devil. That referee is a devil and should be ashamed of himself on his performance yesterday, genuinely he came with a scoreline in his pocket,” Akambi said in an interview with Akwaaba Radio in Berekum.

“We have only one truth and then we have to say it as it is. I had a call from some countries like America, Canada, London after the game What’s wrong with the referee?”

“He came with a mindset. What’s he telling people? He was sitting like an angel during the pre-match as if he cannot talk but not knowing he was having a mindset whiles we were thinking about the beauty of the game. He knows what he was thinking about, and might even see us as a fools.”

“Hearts of Oak will never allow him to officiate any Hearts Of Oak game again.”

“I need his number so I can call and blast him for such a poor performance,” he added.

Kotoko lead the Premier League log with 52 points, 16 points better than Hearts of Oak who are currently sitting fifth on the log.
