Grant: “Referee Sikazwe was too lenient with Yattara
Tuesday, February 3, 2015
Dark Stars Coach Avram Grant demands Zambian ref Janny Sikazwe was excessively merciful in managing Guinea goalkeeper, Naby Yattara, amid Ghana's 2015 Africa Cup of Nations quarter last Sunday.
The Arles-Avignon shot-plug has turned into a subject of feedback in Ghana after he hacked down Captain Asamoah Gyan in the diminishing coals of the diversion, leaving the Al Ain aggressor with a hip harm.
"I think they made a decent showing in this competition, yet I saw this goalkeeper (Yattara) and he didn't act pleasantly amid corner kicks and everything," Coach Grant said.
"I saw what he (Yattara) did to Atsu and I believe that the ref (Sikazwe) was delicate with him, yet I can't say the officials have not made a decent showing in this competition on the grounds that they attempt to secure the players," the previous Chelsea supervisor included.
The Israeli coach will be expecting better administering from Gabonese official Eric Arnaud Otogo-Castane amid Thursday's semi-last go against host Equatorial Guinea.
