The head coach of Ebusua Dwarfs, Ernest Thompson Quartey, was badly assaulted by fans of Berekum Chelsea on Sunday.
The Cape Coast-based side travelled to the Golden City Park for the matchday 20 games.
However, the veteran was accused by the home fans of having ‘juju’ on him while the game was ongoing.
According to him, the home supporters held him up, removed his dress and dragged him out of the Golden City Park in an act that depicted a common criminal who has stolen from someone.
The game was, however, marred by elements of hooliganism when the coach of Dwarfs was attacked by fans of the home team.

“We played the first match, we said our prayer with the players and just as we were going into the dressing room, then about 30 supporters in front of the dressing room. They wanted to search me because they were suspecting I had juju [black magic] on me,” Thompson narrated his ordeal.
“They forcibly opened my zip and all that and when I tried to resist, they started punching me, held my leg, I fell down, some were kicking me.
“This shouldn’t be happening in Ghana football in this day and age. We [Ghana] have come of age, we are in the scientific world to be pummeled, kicked and all that. I have a family at home. I can’t die because of football”, he fumed.
This comes just a week after the GFA President, Kurt Okraku, visited the Bono and Ahafo regions to speak to club administrators over the spate of hooliganism in the two regions.
The GFA boss had called on the clubs to unite in fighting against violence and hooliganism in order to protect the image of Ghana football.
