Communications Director of the Ghana football association, Mr Henry Asante Twum has hit back at some section of Asante Kotoko supporters for resorting to visiting the shrine over unfair treatments from premier league referees.

Speaking in an interview with Akoma FM, Mr Asante believed cursing of referees might not be the right way to improve officiating in the Ghana premier league.
He further added that the FA have nothing against Asante Kotoko that will compel them to influence referees.

“I’m not sure cursing referees is the best way to go, we can’t improve officiating by cursing referees. If that is solution then Ghana would have cursed the center referee who officiated the world cup game between Ghana and Portugal”

“No referee will deliberately decide to cheat Kotoko, I report the referee’s performance to the review committee and the referee’s manager after games that I watched”, he told Kumasi based Akoma FM.

“There are situations where we all know the referee’s performance is not at the level where we want it to be. For someone to think that the FA manipulates referees to cheat a particular team is unfortunate, and there is nothing like that”.

“However, the only way we can improve our game is to win fairly. We won’t encourage referees who for personal interest influence the result of a game”

“I will appeal to fans to be patient, we know there are challenges with officiating just as we have it on the field in terms of play, so Kotoko fans must clear their mind that no FA official will influence referees to cheat their club”, he added.

Some section of Asante Kotoko supporters were reported to have visited the ANTOA shrine to curse Ghana premier league referees who decides to intimidate them on matchdays.
