The Phobians supporters wing believe referees have an agenda against them this season
Ghana Premier League champions Hearts of Oak have had a poor start to the 2020/21 season and the National Chapters Committee believes it is a well-planned plot by referees.
The Phobians are yet to win a game after three matches and the straw that broke the camel’s back was the 1-1 draw against Aduana Stars.
With Hearts leading 1-0, Aduana were awarded a last minute penalty to level the score after Mohammed Alhassan was adjudged to have fouled Bright Agyei.
“The referees think they can misbehave in our matches because of the tight security offered them so they can misbehave and go scot free. The penalty awarded Aduana Stars against us last Sunday was dubious. The game has moved so far to award such penalties,” National Chapters Committee secretary Peter Mahama told Fox FM.
“Is it a plan or a plot from somewhere to intimidate and prevent us from winning the league? Football is for fun,an entertainment and has a rule that governs it.
“The referee (Eso Doh Morrison) knows what is good for him but we are cautioning him and other referees against such predetermined mindset to intimidate us through dubious means being it home or away.
“Hearts of Oak is a club that is bigger and stronger than any club in Ghana and as supporters,we will not sit aloof for referees to officiate against us.
“We know what happened at the Accra sports stadium,if they will come with the results in their pocket,at least they should just be fair,football is played on the pitch.
“There are a lot of rumours of a plot to prevent Hearts of Oak from winning the league again and we want to tell them we are aware of their plans,” he added.
Hearts will travel to Len Clay Sports Stadium in Obuasi to face Ashanti Gold on matchday four.
