According to Kofi Poku on Peace FM, he saw that there was a contact and as a result, Nuhu Liman’s decision was genuine.

The vice Chairman added that, due to the poor performance of Kotoko on the day, Pollack insulted the referee which influenced a section of the team’s supporters to also attack the referee; and so, he don’t know why Pollack is siding with the referee now. “Pollack just want to say something. He [Pollack] is just trying to switch attention from the bad performance of his team by condemning the referee’s [Nuhu Liman] decision.” He said

Although Kotoko beat Nea Salamina by 2-1 to advance to the semi final stage of the MTN FA Cup Competition, Steve Pollack doesn’t think the penalty awarded to his side was a fair decision.
