VIDEO: Bashiru Hayford sits on pitch over unfair treatment from Bechem United fans

Hearts of Lions head coach, Bashir Hayford, caused a delay in their game against Bechem United on Saturday by sitting in the middle of the pitch after the home fans reportedly attacked the Lions bench.

During the match at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park, Hayford took a seat on the field, leading to a 20-minute halt in play.

“The fans were hurling insults and even objects at me and the players. We felt we had to defend ourselves, so we took refuge on the pitch, but honestly, I also responded to them,” he told Akoma FM.

“In my 30 years in the game, I have never witnessed anything like this. It felt more like a war than a football match.”

After the brief interruption, Hayford left the field, allowing the game to resume. Despite being a man down, Bechem managed to avoid defeat.

The draw leaves Lions in the relegation zone, trailing Bofoakwa Tano by three points, who are just above the relegation zone.
