Suspended referees will undergo training before getting the chance to officiate matches again – Referees Manager Alex Kotey

GFA Referees Manager, Alexander Kotey has opened up on plans for suspended referees.

According to him, any referee currently suspended will need to undergo training by Regional Fitness Instructors before they can officiate matches next season.

“Referees who are serving suspension will undergo training by our Regional Fitness Instructors before they return to officiate matches,” Alexander Kotey said in an interview with the Ghana FA media team.

Reacting to the notion that Ghanaian referees are not good enough and lack integrity, the GFA Referees Manager said it is not true.

He explained, “We have Match Officials whose levels of integrity are very high.”

Meanwhile, Alex Kotey has indicated that the association is looking for opportunities for Ghanaian referees to go abroad to build their capacities.

“We are building the capacities of our referees. We are looking for more opportunities to take our referees on international training courses,” he added.
