Premier League club, Accra Great Olympics have reported staunch supporter of the club Joseph Langabel to the Police following his abuse on players after the team’s heavy 4-0 defeat to Hearts of Oak.
Olympics condemned Langabel‘s decision to reign verbal insults on players which was captured on video immediately after their defeat to arch rivals Hearts.
Langabel was caught on viral video verbally attacking the players as they make their way into the tunnel from the pitch with the Wonder Club calling on supporters of the club to respect the players despite their abysmal performance in the Mantse derby.
In a statement on Twitter, Olympics described Langabel’s act as barbaric and called on players to put the shameful experience behind ahead of their upcoming league encounter with Liberty Professionals.
“A certain Joseph Langabel’s nonsensical behavior and abuse of our players immediately after our game against @HeartsOfOakGH yesterday has no place in modern game of football. The players who play for us are humans with blood flowing through veins that deserve some respect!
“We condemn such barbaric act in no uncertain terms! We urge the boys to put that shameful experience behind them as a formal complaint has been lodged with the @GhPoliceService. We shall get back to winning ways!”
A brace by Benjamin Afutu Kotey and a goal each from Joseph Esso and Daniel Afriyie won Hearts the bragging rights over regional rivals Olympics in their Week 14 Ghana Premier League (GPL) encounter.
The defeat handed Olympics remain their second biggest this season after Ashantigold thrashed them 3-0 at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium.
