His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has urged the Ghana Football Association to protect the image of the Ghana Premier League from bad officiating.
He made mention of this when the Ghana FA Executive Council paid a courtesy call on him at Manhyia.
The Asante Kotoko life patron stated protecting the Ghanaian top-flight league from bad officiating will ensure a worth champion emerges to compete in Africa.
“If you don’t make sure to protect the game from bad officiating, it will spoil the game. We also have to be trustful because if we don’t get a worthy winner for our league, they will easily fall off when it matters most (Africa competition),” Otumfuo said.
“Thus, is because the rules work perfectly at this highest level. The referees should be firm in their calls if it’s a penalty, they should take it and should hesitate to do same when it’s offside,” the Overlord of the Asante Kingdom added.
