Legon Cities head coach Bashir Hayford says he is worried about the growing intimidation of referees in the Ghana Premier League.

Coach Hayford saw his side lose 2 – 1 to Berekum Chelsea after the referee disallowed a goal he deemed legitimate.

After the game, he alleged that fans of Berekum Chelsea threatened to assault the referee and match officials thereby influencing his decisions.

“My worry is that the officials were threatened and insulted and told that they will end up like those from the Wamanafo Mighty Royals game,” he said as reported by Citi Sports.

“The referees were afraid. At the tunnel one of them told the referee that he will be beaten badly if they should you lose.

He added, “The referee also didn’t want to be beaten and they were scared. Everybody saw what happened. You prepare your team and the referee robs you.”

“It becomes hard to even measure the progress of your team.”

Legon Cities are currently 15th on the league table with 19 points and will host league leaders Great Olympics at the Accra Sports stadium on match day 19.
