Eleven Wonders team manager and player remanded in custody for two weeks after referee assault

Two team members of Ghana Premier League side, Techiman Eleven Wonders have been remanded in police custody for two weeks for assaulting match officials in their matchday 6 clash against Accra Lions at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The duo are team manager, Ernest Amoh and midfielder Aminu Mohammed who went on rampage after the final whistle in a match in which they lost 1-0.

Eleven Wonders blamed the defeat on the match officials for denying them what they thought was a clean goal and also sending off one of their players.

They were arrested by the Police at the Stadium on Saturday and were arraigned before court this morning but they have been denied bail and will remain in police custody for the next two weeks before they will appear before the court again.

The away side thought they had scored the opener in the early stages of the game but the goal was chalked off for offside.

After recess, Accra Lions grew into the game and nearly took the lead after Frederick Asante rounded off the Techiman Eleven Wonders goalie but blasted wide.

The home side finally broke the deadlock in the 78th minute through the influential Frederick Asante to give Lions the lead.

Eleven Wonders were reduced to ten men after midfielder Amin Adams was shown his marching orders in the 85th minute for abusing one of the assistant referees as Accra Lions ended the game 1-0.
