Bechem United striker Hafiz Konkoni blames referee Latif Qadari for his side's humiliating 6-1 defeat to Hearts of Oak on Saturday in the Ghana Premier League.

The league leaders had a man down in the 38th minute of the game as Emmanuel Asante got sent off after a second yellow card.

A brace from Victor Aidoo and a goal each from Abdul Manaf, Abdul Lawali, Ansah Botchwey and Benjamin Afutu saw the Phobians cruise to comfortable victory at the Accra Sports stadium.

"What happened is not our fault, because I don’t want to comment about officiating issue here. But you have to remove the Monkey out of the Pot of soup before it turns to human hand.

"They say game changer, but what I observed is not good for the game, and I think they should do something about that," Hafiz said after the game.

"The results is very humiliating but I will urge our fans to keep on supporting us, the game did not go the way we wanted it due to one reason or the other, but can say its a nice game."

Bechem United remain on top of the league table with 14 points while Hearts of oak climb up to 2nd after seven games played thus far.
