Tetteh is out of AIKs next match
Ibrahim Tetteh Bangura, Sierra Leonean international striker playing his trade with top Swedish side AIK will not be playing any part of AIK’s next encounter against Orebro next week in the ongoing Allsvenkan season after been sent off in their league encounter away to Syriac on Monday.
Tetteh, who accounted for AIK’s two goals against Gothenburg and Mjallby, was sent off for a foul on the Syriac keeper, and the referee Martin Strömbergsson wasted no time as the red card went up immediately as they were losing 1-0 at the time, the home team Syriac was heading for their first win.
A few minutes after the match was abandoned in the 20th minutes due to fans from both teams throwing fire crackers onto the pitch that left one of the match official’s assistant referee Daniel Warnmark taken to hospital for a medical check up.
It is unclear what decision would be taken by the Swedish Football Association but what is clear is that both teams will be losing vital points for violence on football officials.
Not only one of the match officials injured, a 14-year-old boy was affected with fire burns on his body. Syriac head Coach, Ozcan Melker Michel was furious about the match being called off after his side had taken the lead.
“This is a blow for football. It would have been a hell of a lot more fun to finish the match, ” he said, and he said it is also very clear in the blame lies with the AIK supporters on the spot.
“A hundred percent sure. Of course, everybody here saw that they threw everything on us;” Ozcan was quoted as saying in Aftonbladet.
He is also disappointed that the match was interrupted when the team had the lead 1-0. We had found a way to win the match but now we do not know if it would have been enough.
Also the Sierra Leone striker Tetteh Bangura was disappointed about the referee’s decision to send him off.
