In the wake of a shocking attack on Nsoatreman Head Coach Maxwell Konadu by irate fans of Bofoakwa Tano during a Ghana Premier League match, Brong Ahafo RFA Chairman Dr. Charles Osei Antoh is emphatically calling for permanent measures to curb the rising menace of hooliganism in Ghanaian football.
The disturbing incident unfolded during a crucial match in week 11 at the Sunyani Coronation Park, leaving Konadu hospitalized and prompting the Ghana Football Association to take swift action by imposing a temporary ban on Bofoakwa Tano’s use of the stadium.
“We are going to look through the issue well and be able to put in permanent measures, beyond that i think the perpetrators should be brought to book,” he told Citi Sports.
“Safety at our stadia should be paramount and it is something we have all preached for and preached against violence at our various stadia.
“It should be done because I have been a victim before and so I understand these issues, people come to the venues not understanding what football means,”
