Referees Association chairman in the Western Region, T.R.K Atifu, has warned that referees in the region will boycott lower division matches in solidarity with their colleague who was beaten to death by irate fans last week, Ghanasportsonline can reveal.
According to Mr. Atifu, until some drastic measures are taken by the GFA against supporters of the team involved and the security of colleague referees guaranteed, they wouldn’t handle lower division matches in the region again.
“Refereeing in the lower division is just a hobby. No referee survives on the 20 Ghana Cedis paid them as allowance. So if officiating matches will result in lost of lives then we wouldn’t handle matches henceforth until the GFA takes some drastic measures to guarantee our safety.”
Atifu RAG chairman Western Region told ghanasportsonline.
