Owner and bankroller of Tema Youth, Kweku Osei Parmer believes clubs like Bechem United will continue to fail in Africa competitions if they continue to behave like this in the Ghana Premier League.
Bechem United took on Tema Youth in their outstanding match at the Nana Gyeabour Park on Wednesday.
Tema Youth were defeated by a lone goal scored by former Asante Kotoko striker Ahmed Toure. After the match reports emerged that officials and players of the visiting team were stunned upon their return to the dressing room where they found their belongings’ being ransacked by burgles.
But Parmer who double as the Executive Committee Member of the Ghana Football Association believes clubs like Bechem United will continue to fail in Africa competitions if they continue to behave like this in the local league.
“During the match supporters of Bechem United had access to the inner perimeter and on the field of play and we felt like we have been caged.” He told Asempa FM.
“Officiating on the day was very poor. I have already taken the decision to write officially to the Ethics Committee of the Ghana Football Association for the bad behavior of Bechem United. Ahmed Toure on the field of play consistently used the “F” word on my players but the referee failed to caution him.
“Bechem United didn’t deserve to win the match and they know it. In my humble opinion, if clubs like Bechem United continue to behave like this in the local league we will continue to fail in Africa competitions because they don’t win matches on merit.
“Intimidations should not win matches in modern football and for me I think their venue is not safe for the Premier and I will suggest that it should be closed down until all the necessary security arrangements are done.” He added.
Tema Youth will are now occupying the 6th position with 7 points and will now play WAFA in the match day six fixture of the Ghana Premier League.
