Assaults On Referees Must Stop

It was an unfortunate incident some days ago at Wamanafo Park in a Division One home game between Mighty Royals FC and Bofoakwa FC where referees were assaulted by home supporters in Ghana.

This unprofessional behavior from supporters recently require sanctions in order to protect the integrity of referees in the country.

The practice where hooligans at league centres are left unpunished should never be entertain. It is destroying the beauty of the game and the image of the product.

The Ghana Football Association in collaboration and leadership of clubs should go beyond investigations and crack the whip severely on anyone or group that riot at a league centre to serve as a deterrent to others.

Ghana Football has come off age to be experiencing hooliganism and come to think of it as if we have not learnt lessons from the 2001 May, 9th disaster at the Accra Sports Stadium involving a match Accra Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko where 120 lives were lost.

To all football loving fans, assaulting officials especially after games cannot be the best approach to solve problems on or off the field.

As supporters of our respective teams let us exercise patience and eschew hooliganism at league venues and stop assualting referees.
