Head coach of Dreams FC, Abdul Karim Zito, has accused referees of not being fair to them because of their association with Ghana Football Association (GFA) president, Kurt Okraku.

He made those comments after the side lost 1-0 to Hearts of Oak at Dawu on Sunday.

Mr Okraku resigned from his role as Dreams FC Chief Executive Officer last year after he won the GFA presidential elections.

However, according to Mr Zito, Mr Okraku’s involvement in the club is having a negative effect on them in the league this season adding that they should have been awarded a late penalty when Eric Gawu was brought down in the 90th minute.

“We are being punished because of the GFA President Kurt Okraku, the referees should be firm and do their job, they should be free in their minds when officiating our matches,” Mr Zito told reporters.

“The referee (Morrison Esso) felt if he had whistled for a penalty in that minute, people would have said he did that because of the GFA President who is the former Executive Chairman of our club.

“Now it’s GIGI and Prince who are leading the club, referees should know this and allow us to play our football.”

Dreams are 8th with 10 points after seven games.
