Aduana apologise for 'unacceptable' behaviour of fans against Medeama

Goal Ghana
The Fire Boys have expressed their contempt at the conduct of fans in Dormaa on Wednesday

Ghanaian topflight side Aduana Stars have "condemned the unfortunate and unacceptable behaviour" of their fans during the club's Ghana Special Competition match against Medeama at Dormaa's Nana Agyemang Badu Park on Wednesday. 

Unhappy about the performance of referee Emmanuel Eshun, the 'Ogya' faithful resorted to the launching of missiles at the central man, his assistants, the match commissioner and the away bench. 

The game consequently saw a series of interruptions and the referee was reportedly held hostage after the final whistle. 

"The Management of Aduana Stars FC condemn the unfortunate behaviour of a section of our supporters after the match between Aduana Stars and Medeama SC at Nana Agyemang Badu I stadium [on] Wednesday 24th April 2019," the Fire Boys said in a statement. 

"The behaviour was unacceptable and must not be tolerated, no matter their grievances may be.

"We apologise profusely of the sporting public and all stakeholders for the unfortunate incident."

The game ended in a 1-1 draw, with Aduana's Bright Adjei and Medeama's Kalibo Dedy Toussaint scoring for their respective sides.  

"We assure the public that management will take steps to ensure that such awkward behaviour will not repeat itself again," the statement continued.

"It has also come to our knowledge about the videos circulating in the social media that an official of Medeama SC was stoned.

"Our investigations show that no Medeama SC official was attacked. The man in the video is rather a supporter of Aduana Stars".

The two clubs are set to face one another in the return fixture in Tarkwa on Sunday.
