The Chairman of the Referee’s Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Eddie Doku has stated that, referees are humans and are bound to make mistakes but was adamant that the referees didn’t perform badly and some mistakes are genuine and it should be accepted as such.
In an interview with Asempa Fm morning show, Mr. Doku reiterated that too much emphasis are laid on the mistakes committed by the referees but the press fail to give praise to the officiating officials when it’s due them. “We (media) pound the mistakes like fufu and discuss it at often times but we fail to praise them when they (referees) do well”. he said.
He added that clubs are quick to apportion blame to the doorstep of referees after losing a game and advised that, club should also take a look at other departments of their teams like the players who are the main actors on the field.
