Aduana Stars coach W.O. Tandoh believes journalists are not giving his club the necessary recognition as defending champions of the Ghana Premier League.
The two-time champions, who last won the title in 2017, maintain the status as cup holders owing to the annulment of the 2017-18 championship due to a bribery, corruption and match-fixing scandal.
The league then went on a one-year break before returning for the 2019-20 term in December last year. The Dormaa-based outfit are currently top of the table after nine rounds of games.
"The journalist in this country look bias [against] Aduana Stars. Aduana are the league champions, we are the defending champions," Tandoh said, as reported by Footballghana.
"When have you heard on any media platform that a team is going to play against the 'defending champions'?
"Rather you [media] ridicule Aduana and think about Hearts and Kotoko and you are uplifting them. Are they better than Aduana? No, they are [only] older than us.
"Aduana are the defending champions so I want to urge you the journalists to correct yourselves and note that we are on course [to defend our title].
"We want everybody to acknowledge that we are league champions."
Aduana have won five of their nine games played thus far, losing two others and drawing a further two.
