'The bane of Ghanaian Referee'; FIFA assistant Referee Kwasi Brobbey writes

Assistant FIFA Referee Kwasi Brobbey has shared his view in reaction to the recent happenings in the officiating in the ongoing Ghana Premier League. According to him, Europeans are doing their best to help address issues about officiating and Ghana has to do same rather than destroying what we have.

"I wish all sports Journalists will open this link and read the course for selected referees of the upcoming EURO 2020.

Even with all their football technologies, they still refer to handball offences as CONTROVERSIAL and are still working hard to get it right.

Yes, GPL referees do make mistakes but sometimes too ignorance of the law by some football fans make them criticise referees wrongly.

Our Journalists can help us by using their beautiful platform to educate football fans instead of using it to incite them against referees.

In Europe, they agree their referees make mistakes and always think of how to assist their referees to minimise those mistakes hence the introduction of technologies in football but even with that we still watch them make mistakes.

For ages, we have complained of bad officiating which is not peculiar to GPL alone but worldwide, what has being the way forward to assist our referees from minimising or preventing those mistakes.

If we can't afford those technologies, we can also appoint 6 referees to a match where 1 each will be assigned solely to assist with penalty areas incidents as was done previously in Europe until the introduction of Goal line technology and VAR."

"The GPL referee isn't a super human and also needs help to reduce his/her mistakes"
