Hearts of Oak want a ‘competent referee’ appointed for their MTN FA Cup final against fierce rivals Asante Kotoko at the Tamale Sports Stadium on Sunday, 29 October.
According to the spokesperson, Opare Addo, the Phobians would emerge victorious if there is fair officiating in the epic clash.
With local referees often bastardized after matches between the two biggest sides in the country, there were suggestions for the committee to appoint a foreign official but that has been rejected.
It looks like Hearts would not mind who will be the centre referee provided he can do.
”Once again, it is the same thing that we are also calling for, fairness. There should not be any reason why anybody officiating should not be fair, once there is fairness Hearts of Oak would return with the cup this year, we do not have fear for any opponent,” Opare said.
”If the committee brings any referee who is competent enough, we are ready for the match.”
This year’s MTN FA Cup final is under the promotional title ‘The unmissable’ and it’s privileged to have the two most successful clubs in the country do battle.
