Recuperating referee Patrick Kyeremanteng says he felt traumatized after he was subjected to severe beatings by irate Dwarfs fans after a Premier League on Sunday.

The abuse of the experienced referee has dominated the major talking points in the country.

The Ghana Football Association moved swiftly to close down the Robert Mensah Stadium at Cape Coast pending the outcome of an investigation into the matter.

Kyeremanteng, along with two of his assistants were subjected to severe hammering after he disallowed Ebusua Dwarfs equalizer during their Premier League defeat to Aduana Stars.

The fans were unhappy with the decision of the referee and vent their spleen on the match by attacking after the blown of the final whistle as scores of journalist run for cover.

Speaking on the matter which has gained inches in the Ghanaian press, referee Kyeremanteng said he felt live had ended.

”It was a bitter experience for me and I felt very traumatized when I was attacked by the fans,” Kyeremanteng said from his sick bed in Accra.

”This has never happen to me before and I pray that it doesn’t happen to any of my colleagues.

”Some of the fans simply do not understand the rules of the game and they think they must win at all cost because they’re playing at home.

”It’s very unfortunate.”
