-Ghana Head Coach Kwesi Appiah has alleged that his player was insulted on the pitch
-He slammed the friendly match organizers for the choice of referee
-Ghana lost the match by a lone goal against Mexico
Comeback coach of the senior National Team, James Kwesi Appiah had a few reservations at the presser after Ghana’s loss to Mexico in an International Friendly match played earlier this morning. Ghana lost the match 1-0.
However, the coach of Ghana said he was shocked to see that the center referee for the match was from Mexico. According to records, Referee Baldomero Toledo was a Mexican-American but the Ghanaian Team trainer said it still did not take away the fact that he was a Mexican.
Baldomero Toledo was born in Mexico but moved to the USA later as a young man. A website captures him however as an American.
Kwesi Appiah he found it hard to believe that no other referee could be called upon to officiate a match between Ghana and Mexico apart from a Mexican.
What is even more shocking is the fact that James Kwesi Appiah further alleged the referee used profane language on one of his players; an act the coach found very disturbing.
He slammed the referee for his conduct on the field of play and was of the view that his action had no place in the modern game of football.
El Tri gave the Mexicans a first half lead in the 32nd minute with a strike through a penalty.
Ghana has another friendly match lined up against the United States of America while Mexico goes on to take on Paraguay in the Gold Cup in which they are participants.
