The director of communication for Ghana Football Association, Mr. Henry Asante Twum has revealed the reasons why the FA has appointed the Referees manager, referees review panel, and referees assessor.
According to him, the FA is doing everything possible to let Ghanaians gain their lost trust in the referees back.
Ghana football association has appointed retired referees, Alex Kotey as the referees’ manager, Exco member Mr. Fred Acheampong as the chairman of referees assessor and classification panel, and the deputy central regional RFA chairman, Dr. Francis Eyiah Bediako as the chairman of referees review panel.
“Refereeing in every football association is very important. The FA thinks there is a need to strengthen such a department. FIFA as a world football governing body has a referee manager and so the FA took such initiatives in order to bring back the trust of referees into Ghanaians. Initially, RAG was solely controlling all the affairs of the referees but now Mr. Alex Kotey, the newly appointed referees manager will be assisted by the other referees’ departments to strengthen our game. And that’s the huge step taken by this current FA.” Henry Asante on Yes FM in Cape Coast.
On the referees’ allowances and the suspended league, Henry said, they are not owing the women who officiated the women’s league but the men in both division one and premier league.
“The FA currently doesn’t owe any women referee, except the premier and the Division one referees who are currently receiving their allowances based on a procedure.”
“As at now, they have received their allowances from matchday one to nine.
We are working around the clock to pay the remaining allowances very soon.” He added.
