No supporter slapped a player of Thunder Queens – Berry Ladies FC react to accusation
Ghana Women’s Premier League side, Berry Ladies FC have refuted the accusation of a supporter slapping a player of Thunder Queens FC over the past weekend.
The club last Saturday hosted and defeated the matchday 5 opponent of the ongoing league season 3-1 at the Madina Zurak Astroturf.
In the aftermath of the game, a statement released by Thunder Queens has alleged that one of their players, Gifty Osei was slapped by a supporter of Berry Ladies FC.
Having taken notice of the release, Berry Ladies FC have also issued a statement to set the records straight.
The club insists it is impossible for any fan of theirs to have slapped a player of Thunder Queens because they had none of their supporters at the match venue just as instructed by the Ghana FA.
“Our attention has been drawn to a press release by Thunder Queens FC with the heading, CLARIFICATION OF A PLAYER BEING SLAPPED.
“To set the records straight, no supporter of Berry Ladies Football Club slapped the said player, Gifty Osei during our match with Thunder Queens FC,” part of the release from Berry Ladies FC has said.
The release further explains, “However, our attention was drawn to a certain disturbance in the stands, we drew the attention of the Match Commissioner who requested for the Police and security present to take the necessary action.”
“We, therefore, urge the Ghana Football Association and all stakeholders to disregard the allegations of supporters attack on a Thunder Queens FC Player as there were no fans allowed in the stadium.”
