‘Emotional’ Central African Republic boss, Raoul Savoy throws curses at Ghana after painful defeat

Posted by

Head Coach of Central African Republic, Raoul Savoy was left fuming and throwing curses after his side’s 2-1 defeat to Ghana in the final Group E game of the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

The Wild beasts threw a 25th minute Louis Mafouta goal to lose 2-1 to the Black Stars at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi. Ghana grabbed their goals through a 43rd minute Mohammed Kudus free-kick and a 88th minute Ernest Nuamah goal from close range.

The 2-1 win earns Ghana top spot in Group E and a place at the 2023 AFCON to be played in Ivory Coast in January and February next year, alongside Angola from the group, while Central African Republic miss out on a place at the competition despite enjoying their best ever qualifying performance.

Speaking after the game, Raoul Savoy accused center referee Peter Waweru from Kenya of favoring Ghana during the crucial encounter. He questioned the legitimacy of Ghana’s second goal and went on to throw curses at the team, stating that: “Your next AFCON will be like the last one.”

The emotional comments were in reference to Ghana’s horrendous display at the 2022 AFCON in Cameroon, where they exited in the group stages with a single point from games against Morocco, Gabon and Comoros.
