Referees Association of Ghana chairman in the Ashanti Region, Retired referee G. K. Manu has expressed his disappointment with the current administration of the Ghana Football Association.
The retired referee expressed his dissatisfaction with the inability of the Kurt Okraku-led administration to fulfill their promises of settling outstanding debts owed referees.
“As far as the FA is concerned, we are not happy with the way payments are made for the referees. They [GFA] failed to fulfill the promises they made for us” retired referee Manu told OTEC FM.
“Some of the referees are even fed-up, we the leaders need to calm them down because it’s very painful for not paying them after officiating games, that money is being used for accommodation and as transportation to various centers. I’m highly disappointed in the current FA” he concluded.
Earlier this year, the Ghana Football Association made an outstanding payment of GHS300, 000 to the Referees Association of Ghana. The referees were owed money following the sudden abrogation of the 2017/2018 season after the first round.
