Mo Bejaia Central Defender Adel Lakhdari has accused Burkinabe referee Jean Ouattara of aiding Ashanti Gold to triumph over them at the Len Clay Sports Stadium last Sunday in the CAF Champions League.
Centre back Adel Lakhdari, who was sent off for a second bookable offence after handling a ball stated, Ashanti Gold plays fantastically well and did not need the help of the referee to beat them.
He further attributed his club’s loss to the bad nature of the pitch. “We could not play well because the pitch is not good. We play on artificial turf in my country,” he added.
Ashanti Gold beat Mo Bejaia by a lone goal hoping to defend it in a fortnight in Algeria to book their place in the next stage of the Competition.
