The Voodoo magic of Robert Mensah

Nana Bonsu you have written a good article about late Robert Mensah but there are some few points I must correct. Here I contribute as a retired soccer referee who started refereeing in 1970. First Kotoko and TP Englebert first match was in 1967 Kotoko's goal tender was goalkeeper Annie Coffie. But in the final match played at the Tata Rafeal stadium Robert Mensah did not remove his proverbial cup during that controversial penalty. It was when the Kotoko team was coming to the field to start the second half that a spectator tried to remove his cup but he took it off and turned it over and showed it to all that there was no juju in his cup. Mabe Robert was rough off the pitch but on the football field he will never allow his players to accost a referee. This was when he was at Dwarfs and Kotoko. He will tell them go and score a goal and the referee will accept it. And he will apologize to the referee. This is one thing I personally saw from him
