Referees Association of Ghana (RAG) president Joe Debrah has explained why the performance of referees has fallen below standard in the ongoing Ghana Premier League .
Officiating has been the main problem in the second round of the league with clubs, players and administrators complaining about the performance of referees.
Great Olympics captain Gladson Awako, Kotoko coach Mariano Barreto, Dreams FC coach Viric and a host of others have all complained bitterly about poor officiating in the league in the ongoing campaign.
According to Joe Debrah, most of the referees officiating in the league do not attend meetings for their performance to be assessed.
“The problem is that they think they are FA referees so they don’t attend training and reviews. Yet still, they get matches to officiate from the GFA. So we are not able to correct them when there is an error”, he told Happy FM.
Joe Debrah also disputed the report that the mass promotion of new referees to the system has led to the problem of poor officiating.
“I don’t agree with referee Raman because all the referees that were promoted are performing very well. Since Normalisation time some of these referees have performed very well”, he added.
